Williams' Blood is an autobiographical song, written by Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman (formerly of Prince and The Revolution) explaining how Jones takes after her mother's, Marjorie Jones née Williams, musical side of the family rather than that of her disciplinarian father Reverend Robert Jones. According to the lyrics, Jones' mother reveals that her grandfather was a musician who traveled with Nat King Cole, womanizing and drinking from town to town. The song describes her family's lament that she isn't more of a Jones like her sister or brother Noel while she expresses her desire to be free.
In the song's introduction Jones distorts a line from the first stanza of Amazing Grace declaring, "You can't save a wretch like me". At the end of the track when Jones sings the first two lines of Amazing Grace, her mother Marjorie, a lyric soprano, can be heard singing the same hymn in church. The song's working title was Keeping up with the Joneses, an idiom heard in the lyrics.
