Huddie Williams Ledbetter, better known as his stage name Lead Belly, was a folks and blues well-rounded performer that composed his own songs which covered a variety of topics about real world circumstances while playing a variety of instruments including his infamous twelve string guitar. Lead Belly recorded this song when he was signed to Victor Records, one of the biggest record companies at the time.

i love the unique sound of this song, between the mixture of different instruments and even the lyrics of the song.
