" His voice strong and confident, Hicks cut four blues songs on June 15th, including the dramatic “Mississippi Heavy Water Blues,” which he’d written on the train ride to New York City. The song was about the recent catastrophic flooding along the Mississippi Delta. Near the end of the song, he identified himself by his real name: “Robert Hicks is singing/That’s why I’m cryin’, Mississippi heavy water blues.” "
