Throughout the '20s and '30s, Nashville's Grand Ole Opry regularly featured DeFord Bailey on its stage. His solo harmonica performances of traditional folk tunes were wildly popular, even if they were more akin to country blues music than to country music proper. Made between 1974 and 1976, when Bailey himself was in his late seventies, these recordings capture the legend with his harmonica abilities mostly in tact.

This song is by DeFord Bailey and appears on the compilation Broke, Black & Blue (1999).
