A "back door man" is a guy who has relations with a woman while her husband has been out slaving away to provide for her. The guilty perpetrator if a wife was caught cheating was typically a tradesman caller like the ice man, or an insurance salesman. He would run out the back door to avoid detection when the husband entered through the front. The "Back Door Man" theme has been taken up in several soul and blues songs, including "Back Door Santa" by Clarence Carter

Lyrics to "Chasing The Sinking Sun" song by Shout Out Louds: One word, one way One turn, one word to say One love, one way One turn, one more then to say? I r. .I’m still chasing the sinking sun Come on sunset, come down now It’s about time I Turned this place into a ghost town And anywhere I go there is no on.One word, one way One turn, one word to say One love, one way One turn, one more then to say?
Jack White’s Third Man later collaborated with Document Records to release all of McTell’s recordings on vinyl. T-Bone Walker: Call It Stormy Monday. A follower of Blind Lemon Jefferson, whom he’d often help get around to gigs due to the elder man’s lack of eyesight, the Dallas-based Walker inspired many of the greats. They weren’t just good mimics – their originals sound every bit as legit as many recordings from the South, from the vocals and 12-string playing to the light foot tapping and Glover’s harp wails.
Originally by blues musician Willie Dixon, this song was covered by The Doors for their eponymous debut album. The Doors' drummer John Densmore described it as a song that is "deeply sexual and got everyone moving".
