SFTS, SO wild that you posted the Lightnin' Hopkins tune:

It was my love for Lightnin' Hopkins that led me to discover Mississippi John Hurt!

My Dad's uncle, Uncle Bud (EVERYBODY called him that), once hauled Lighnin' Hopkins to the state prison in Huntsville, TX. Lighnin' Hopkins wrote this song about Uncle Bud:

I am currently looking for another song about Uncle Bud that I understand the inmates still sing about him today...probably written by Hopkins as well. The only line of the song that I know is "His d**k is as big as a baseball bat" (not kidding). If you know anything about that song please let me know! Thanks.

And, thanks to the poster of this wonderful thread that kept me up late last night watching/listening to videos!!!

Electable Ron Paul is my hero.
