Rt. 8 east of Cleveland, Mississippi,
down a gravel road and past a graveyard,
is a crossroads.
On Dockery's Plantation was the home of Charley Patton
The master bluesman that Robert Johnson
went looking for to show him how to play the guitar.
Patton shunned young Robert away
due to Johnson's lack of ability.
Robert took this path in the video
late that same night as he left Patton's totally dejected.
The rest is history, and one of the most popular urban legends of all time.
