    Absolute Perfection. This song is written so well I don't think a bad version is possible.

    Leadbelly sure wrote great songs & has a very good voice to go with them.

    Discovered this song with Tom Waits, I'm rediscovering right now. I didn't know of Leadbelly until last year, but I know many of his songs. The proof he is a must-know artist!

    My first experience with Leadbelly was the movie about him I watched when I was in my late teens or early 20's.

    I remember drinking with friends who were singing Disney songs all night, so I sang this. In hindsight a bit of a mood killer, but definitely a good time!

    Many people have their “break up song” and this has to be one of my finalists. If you’ve ever felt more dead then alive because of love you really get what Huddy is putting down here. Heartache put to music.
