    Listening to the 1997 reissue of the 1957 album "At The Gate Of Horn" which suggest it was recorded live at the Chicago Club of the same name, it was actually a studio album, Odetta's second, recorded in New York City at Esoteric Studios. Song is by Huddie Ledbetter (Leadbelly)and the accompaniment on bass is by Bill Lee

    i believe bob dylan sampled parts of this song for "if you ever go to houston" on his new album, "together through life". he's always admired odetta :)

    man I can't stand the CCR version. This one's okay, but leadbelly always did it best.
