In gospel music, they say “Lordy Lordy.” In blues music, they say “Baby Baby.” This presentation explores the differences as well as the connections between the blues and gospel music, with reflections on growing up in small-town Oklahoma Methodist churches. Many musical examples from each genre are offered.
