Sunday Dispatch .395

What kept you going?

Well, you know, some people say to God, "God, you said you'd be with me if ever I needed you. You said if I made a step, you'd make a step. Well, where was you yesterday, when I was sick and down and out? Because there wasn't but one set of steps, and I didn't see yours." And God says, "Well, that's when I carried you on my back." You dig? And I think God's been carryin' me a long, long time. I think he made it possible for me to be Bo Diddley. Now, a lot of people jump up and say, "But you play the blues." But why couldn't it be God that gave me this talent? Why does it always got to be the devil? I've heard that from some of my own people. But I think my music is God's gift. Because I am not a highly educated person, and I was trying to figure out how to survive in this cruel world that I was comin' up in.
