dwditty Origins: Sporting Life blues (8) RE: Origins: Sporting Life blues 18 Feb 09


Sportin' Life was written by Brownie McGhee - when he was 15 years old! - which attests to the kind of childhood he had. The late Dave Van Ronk - who does the best version I know - tells a great story about the song. He covers the song on several albums - a google search will turn it up I am sure.
