Some blues ballads may also fit the form: Railroad Bill, or Stagger Lee.

There's also a connection with blues and the English Music Hall tradition.

Some rural blues singers like Big Joe Williams and maybe Furry Lewis go back in to the 1800s.

I always thought Crow Jane to be an earlt 1900s blues,

Richie
