I found this, it's a good one!
When the train comes along, I hadn't heard it before so maybe one of you will like it as well.

I friend of mine turned me onto Fred circa 1970, sophomore in H.S. and that was the first tune I heard by him. Been a fan ever since. Here is another tasty version of that song with Seasick Steve and Tom Jones:

"I do not play no rock and roll, y'all"

"Natchel blues"

LOVE me some Fred - he's a true bada$$ guitar player.

Thanks John!  I haven't listened to Fred McDowell in a few years.  Wish I had the talent or determination to play slide guitar.  I've been a fan of Fred since the Stones "Sticky Fingers' album. Somewhere in my scattered collection I have 3 versions of "You Got To Move".  Stones, Blind Boys of Alabama, and of course Fred. 

hope all is well, Steve M. in SE WI
