Lockwood credits his mother's lover Robert Johnson. Claims this was one of the first songs his mentor learned him to play. And so Lockwood is the obvious go-between for Sonny Boy Williamson. Both Sonny Boy and Robert Jr. were live entertainers on the famous blues radio show King Biscuit Flower Hour, (still) broadcasted dayly from Helena, AR.
