Almost thirty years ago,  good solid playing.  What happened to the friend?

Wow... this rivals any other version I have heard of this... I love this song.  It's a pleasuer to hear it played so well.  Is this on the SS Stewart?

Two years down the road, I'm answering the questions. I'm not ignoring anyone. I just don't check for comments on my postings.
Don, nothing happened to the friend. I just dropped out for 30 yearsI did find the friend, and reconnected with him in 2009.
Andy, thanks for your kind comments. Yes, all my sound files are played on the S.S.Stewart. I love the feel and sound of this banjo.

This is a Woody Guthrie song. Nice job. I play a simpler version. (Much simpler.) I have a S.S. Stewart too.

The origins of this song go back a long way. This, for example is one account:
"Going Down the Road Feeling Bad was frequently recorded in the 1920s and 1930s by hillbilly artists such as Henry Whitter, Ernest Stoneman, and Fiddlin’ John Carson. While the earliest commercial release dates only to 1923, these numerous recordings suggest currency in the oral tradition. Floating lyrics common to the song appear in other folksongs."
My version is influnced by many versions including, "Chilly Winds" by Wade Ward, and"Going Around This World Feeling Bad" by Pete Steele.
It's actually not a complicated version.
