Escapee Origins: The authors of the 'Carter Family songs' (395* d) RE: Origins: The authors of the 'Carter Family son 06 Dec 08

Does anyone know the origin of "No Depression In Heaven"? I love it dearly and have played it for years. Recently, I read in a CD box set liner notes that the Carter's version was a cover. It didn't say where they got it.
I learned this song from a New Lost City Ramblers album, and it led me into old-time and country music and introduced me to the Carter Family. Oddly enough, when I heard the Carter recording, I didn't care for it, but by then, I'd been a devotee for a long, long time.
Fair winds,
