GUEST,Bill Ackerbauer Origins: Cocaine Blues (28) RE: Origins: Cocaine blues 16 Feb 04

I love the version Dylan does on the Gaslight Tapes bootlegs. At one point, he changes the verse "Headed up Beale Street, turning on Main, looking for a man who sells cocaine" to "Headed up Main Street, turning on Beale, looking for a man who's called Lucille."

The version I play is a hybrid of versions by Stefan Grossman and Dave Van Ronk, and I think they both learned it from Rev. Gary Davis.
