I wrote this blues after reading Romeo Dallaire's book "Shake Hands With the Devil" about his experiences as head of the UN forces during the Rwandan genocide. It's written from his perspective. It borrows heavily from two Robert Johnson songs "Hellhound on My Trail" and "Me and the Devil". The fiddle part is played by Catherine Planet. This is an example of slide banjo. It's played in E on a long-necked banjo.
