Down the Dirt Road Blues (2:56)

Cover of Founder Of The Delta Blues

From Founder Of The Delta Blues and 46 other releases

One of Charley Patton’s most interesting tracks, with fascinating use of different rhythms. How does he get to beat the guitar and play it at the same time? Words still pretty hard to decipher (no change there) but lyrics freely available on Google. Believed to be played in standard tuning in C. Point of interest: Is the first line I’m going away to another world? or I’m going away to the one I know?
