Video: Billy Branch and the Sons of Blues — As the Years Go Passing By


You know my love will follow you
As the years go passing by

Give you all that I own
That’s one thing you can’t deny…

As the Years Go Passing By” is a song penned by Peppermint Harris for Fenton Robinson, who first recorded it in 1959 on Duke Records. Authorship of the song was credited to ‘Deadric Malone’ (a pseudonym of Don Robey, owner of Duke Records) which was a customary practice for label owners at that time.
