There are at least three sweet homes on the earth. Sweet Home Chicago (Robert Johnson), sweet home Osaka (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nirj4NEe6Io) (Masahiro Kuwana) and sweet home Alabama (Lynyrd skynyrd). Sweet home Chicago is written by 12 bar blues. It is good introduction of blues and worth to learn for us beginners.
