Hesitation Blues

I keep finding songs that trace back to Charlie Poole then WC Handy. Maybe me and Charlie were drinking buddies in one of my past lives. I found this song, Hesitation Blues in the Gordon Collection at the American Folklife Center sung by Bascom Lamar Lunsford. Charlie’s version is different of course seeing as how there are a thousand versions of this song originally written by Smyth, Middleton and Gillham in the early 20th century. I dig this guy’s version too.

I sing Lunsford’s version here just kinda how I want to…for good or bad, here it is.
