I first heard this at a jam. I was unable to take a break and the guy that started the song told me afterward that it was a Dock Boggs tune, made for banjo! I investigated and was hooked. Banjo is in standard G, capoed at around the 4th.

Great voice...soulfull, and poignant picking that suits the words.  Very nice. Thanks.

Dock Boggs is original crazy revenant skull-head hobo voice from the tomb! Great version of song, great singing. BEEFUS will download!

Haunting. I like this style (never heard anything like it so far).

It's obviously not my Janet Davis YCTYB book stuff! Is this "clawhammer" excuse my ignorance. I'd like to try it somehow.
