John: Re:Share Cropper's Blues - W. Robeson
Actually it was on my first list which started this tune thing off. Kay
Starr made a wonderful recording of it on the (Red Label) Capitol in the
early days when she sang jazz and not pop slop. About as good as it gets.
Loved some of the lines...

"My dog's got funny habits
He's been eating all the rabbits by himself.

My Son's in Jeff City doin' 10 to 15
The old lady Left me when the pickin's got lean
Nobody likes me, they call me bad news
I've got the Share Cropper's Blues
