I have been working on this tune for some time now.

This song was originally done by The Reverend Gary Davis. If you don't know who he is, find out. Sunni Mcgrath was one of his many ridiculously talented students who went on to making great music and his version is what mine is mostly based on. Other prominent students of his would be Jorma Kaukonen, David Bromberg, Stefan Grossman, Roy Bookbinder and so many others.

This tune tried to get away from me a couple times, but it could have been worse. Trust me ;) I think getting a clean version would be like filming the Loch Ness monster. Hope you like it!

P.S. Thank you Slubberde for introducing me to S. Mcgrath through your Youtube post pulled from an old out of print record. I just can't thank you enough... Here it is, what has it been almost 2 years?

P.S.S. I know, shut up already. A big thanks to Charlie Hall, if you live in CO and need lessons, he's the guy.

Thanks for playing this. 
@evsynator I can tell you from experience that a couple could ones and the outdoors are definitely the best way to play it. Cheers!
Sitting out in the garden in the sun with a few beers and listening to this would be great .
