Subject: RE: origin and lyr: Alabama Bound
Thanks Peace for the link. Unfortunately I can't listen to that site with my computer.

"In 1939 Jelly Roll Morton claimed to Alan Lomax to have made the song up himself in 1905 when he was in the Alabama barrell house circuit."

If anyone could transcribe it that would be helpful.
