Devil in his music - . The devil is a common figure in the blues,...
. The devil is a common figure in the blues, but Johnson made him personal. Johnson sang about Satan knocking on his door and hounding him through life: "Got to keep moving, got to keep moving, blues coming down like hail, "And the days keep on 'minding me I've got a hellhound on my trail." Such lines took on added meaning after Johnson's death.
