At The Crossroads and went down on my knees

By
Home Inspector with DeSoto Home Inspection Services

My job takes me to many places. Today I was at "The Crossroads" in Clarksdale, MS. Known for the birthplace of the Blues. Rumor has it you can sell your soul to the devil and he will teach you to play a guitar real good.

 

                Hwy 69 & 49

 

    Check out Robert Johnson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd60nI4sa9A 

     or Eric Clapton http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-twOjwBORwg&feature=related in these videos.

 

The birthplace of the Blues

         Just thought you guys might enjoy this.

I've been to Clarksville. Have not sold my soul and still can't play guitar. Guess it maks sense.

Thanks for the memory!

Hi Frank - Thanks for sharing this.  My husband plays guitar and does it pretty darn well, but I don't think he has sold his soul (I hope not!).  I called him over to check out your photos, and of course he is a huge Clapton fan, so it took awhile to get my computer back!

Hi Susan,

I hope your husbands soul is still intact. I bet you have had lots of fun with him playing guitar over the years. Have you seen the George Clooney movie O Brother where art thou? It has a seen where a soul was sold.

I've been there several times. It's a great place to sit back and enjoy the music.
