Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Worried man blues
Lead Belly didn't record "Worried Man Blues" although he did record "Worried Blues" a totally different song. Woody Guthrie recorded in and probably took it from the Carter Family, modifying it to his own style. Lonnie Donegan brought it to the UK on "Backstairs Session". It's not a blues at all! If you want the lyrics let me know and I'll send them tomorrow evening. Very late: gruelling day! Dr John
