Subject: RE: Sam McGee Chords & Lyrics: Penitentiary Blues, etc
I just read a very interesting book: "Tom Ashley, Sam McGee, Bukka White: Tennessee Traditional Singers". Got it from the library, had to order it though from another town. If you are interested in Sam McGee (or even if not!) you should check it out - there are some song transcriptions in there too. Author is Thomas G. Burton.
