Lomax should not be credited as a writer. He was a musicologist and the first person to record it. He was neither a musician nor a songwriter.

Leadbelly had been playing his version long before he met Lomax, but of course he didn’t write it either— it’s a folk song.

Hi Old Smokey,
Thank you for the corrections.
I got my comments my Wikipedia, and that are not always on point with some of the inside stuff.
Truly a wonderful folk song from of old!!!
Thanks again for the great feedback!

Sweet!
I do this on my Weissenborn. Probably not as nicely as this though.
Hi Jim,
Thanks for the great words.
I would love to sing and jam with you on this wonderful song!!!
Stay well, and keep on playing!
Rene
