Buddy Guy – Skin Deep
Buddy Guy said he was inspired to write the song “Skin Deep” after reuniting with a white childhood friend whose parents had cut off their relationship as teens. Another story behind the song is that he was 17 years old, poor living in a busted up house in the south. He was watching his mom comb her hair in a broken mirror. He says” mom, your so beautiful” she responds ” beauty is only skin deep”.
