Can someone please tell me who made the first (or an early) record of 
Stackolee Blues (or Stagger Lee Blues)?  I've known this title, but not the tune.  I 
heard it played yesterday and liked it a lot.
My searches so far have turned up versions by the Greatful Dead, Jerry Lee 
Lewis, Taj Mahal, and Mississippi John Hurt.  Somehow, I think there must have 
been earlier versions.  Any help out there?
I'd love to hear the best way to do a search like this on the internet.
