"Nobody's fault but Mine" words meaning

Recommended Posts

Devil he told me to roll.   How to roll the log tonight.   Nobody's fault but mine

Brother he showed me the gong.  Brother he showed me the ding dong ding dong.  How to kick that gong to light.  Oh, it's nobody's fault but mine.

What does "roll the log tonight" and "how to kick the gong tonight" mean??

It means to party to excess. The lyrics are your typical blues lament about being a fuck-up, making bad choices, and reconciling those choices.

I thought Joseph (Blind Willie)Johnson wrote the song.  Robert just changed the words and kept the title.
