Subject: Same melody as Digging My Potatoes
Hey, y’all. I’ve noticed how whenever one of the old blues guys had a hit, they (no doubt at the urging of their record companies) would put out more songs with the same groove and melody. e.g. Listen to Howlin' Wolf's Smokestack Lightning, and then I Asked Her For Water, and a few others.

So I figure there must be a song with the same melody as Digging My Potatoes. Here’s Big Bill Broonzy's version that I’m most familiar with.

Anyone know anything?
