Hellhound On My Trail

Doug Henthorn
Robert Johnson


’Hellhound on My Trail’ looks to be the only cover on the upcoming album. It’s my humble rendition of a legendary blues song by the most legendary bluesman.

The song has a real resonance with me and my dealings with cancer over the past couple of years. Mortality, paranoia, feeling that you’re walking around on a trap door- it‘s all there. But also there’s this very sweet appreciation of the little things in the lyric that I love.


I got to keep on moving, I got to keep on moving
Blues falling down like hail, blues falling like hail
And the days keep worrying me, there's a hellhound on my trail

Hellhound on my trail

If today was Christmas eve, if today was Christmas Eve
And tomorrow was Christmas day, tomorrow was Christmas Day
All I would need is my little sweet rider
Just to pass the time away, to pass the time away

You sprinkled hot foot powder, sprinkled hot foot powder

All around my door, all around my door

It keeps me with a ramblin' mind rider
Every old place I go, every place I go

I can tell the wind is risin', tell the wind is risin’.

Leaves tremblin' on the tree, tremblin' on the tree
All I need is my little sweet woman
And to keep my company, to keep my company
