Tony Joe White: Highway Blues

Chris Bourke, Rip It Up (New Zealand), November 1993

AS YOU DRIVE south out of Memphis down Highway 61, the trees and houses stop at the edge of the city limits. On either side of the narrow two-lane road, the horizon is almost bare, as far as the eye can see. This is the Delta, the land where the blues began.

Total word count of piece: 1922
