Comments
One of the most famous and widely recorded early blues songs. According to ASCAP it is "the most recorded song of the first half of the 20th Century", outdone in the entire century only by "Silent Night". It is supposedly based on Handy’s experiences being penniless and sleeping on the streets of St. Louis in 1892.
