A song written and first recorded by Blind Alfred Reed.
Here's my instrumental version on tenor uke made by Doug Frink.

Like your style! The percussive finger picking works really well with that Uke.

Thanks!

Springsteen did a modern version of this song focusing on Katrina and New Orleans.

I heard the Ry Cooder version years ago and had me hooked on the song. Very cool instrumental version. Well played and....I like your style of playing very much!
