Cairo Is My Baby’s Home

Henry Townsend

Thoughts Of Cairo

St. Louis bluesman Henry Townsend performs his original blues “Cairo Is My Baby’s Home.”

Prior to traveling to St. Louis as a young boy Henry Townsend had grown up in Cairo, Illinois. This ode to his childhood home was among the songs that were recorded by Sam Charters in St. Louis in 1961.
