Year: 1966

Blind singer guitarist from Montgomery, Alabama.

Covers:

1967:

Etta James [as Tell Mama; her greatest hit (n°23 US, top 10 R&B) with I'd Rather Go Blind on the B-side]

1969:

Soul Survivors [with Duane Allman]

1970:

Janis Joplin [idem, live version on postumous album Farewell Song in '82]

Like Ann Peebles' Come To Mama, covered successfully by Bob Seger as Come To Poppa, Tell Daddy/Tell Mama crossed the gender line in the other direction.
