Guarapero/Lost Blues 2 is the title of a 2000 album by Will Oldham. It is the second compilation of singles, rarities, and live performances, after Lost Blues and Other Songs (1997). A third Oldham compilation, Little Lost Blues, was released in 2006.

The lyrics of "The Risen Lord", an alternative version of which appeared on the 2004 EP Black/Rich Music, are taken from a poem by D. H. Lawrence. "Big Balls" is a version of a song by AC/DC (with lyrics rewritten by Oldham), and "Every Mother's Son" was originally performed by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
