See That My Grave is Kept Clean by Carl Wallace published on 2013-06-14T02:25:02Z Texas Blues man Blind Lemon Jefferson wrote and recorded this traditional tune "See That My Grave is Kept Clean" in 1927. I recorded it on one of my homemade 4 string guitars tuned to G minor and played through a 1968 Fender Bandmaster. Blind Lemon was born in Coutchman Texas in 1893 and died in Chicago in 1929. He was buried in Texas in the Wortham Negro Cemetery and the grave was unmarked until 1967. That is when when a marker was erected in what the cemetery committee considered the most general area of his burial. One thing I considered after making this recording is I have a trip to Chicago planned in the very near future.
