GUEST,Pete Origins: Been In The Pen So Long (10) RE: Origins: Been In The Pen So Long 18 Jan 13

I guess the song could originate from the blues era, since the songs it also in two other Mel Bay Blues songbooks. Do you like the melody of this song? The song could possible also have Jewish roots, since Jerry Silvermann, being a Jew, seems the be the only person who has put this song into print.
