Searching for some hidden blues...

Postby Frequently Fading » Sat Nov 27, 2010 5:21 am

I recently heard a tune on a public radio station that i really enjoyed, but was driving at the time and had no way to write it down or anything, and didn't catch the artists names or any other information.
All i took from it was what i thought was the title of the track, which as remember was "the red arrow blues"

I found a track by the name from franz jackson but what i heard was not an instrumental. This was almsot 2 weeks ago and i'm just now searching. But some lines that i remember are like
"when i die, i wanna be carried on by 16 white horses..." "16 white horses?! When i die i wanna white CADILLAC"

It sounded like an older recording, and was recorded live. I really can't remember any more after this times passed but don't want it to totally slip my mind, if anyone reads this and has any idea, i'd really appreciate it. Sorry it's such a vague question...

I know Fred McDowell had a song called Six White Horses but that's probably not helpful.

...a vague answer for ya. ; )
