Traditional, old timey blues on cigar box guitar and Iowa saxophone. This song was one of my earliest CBN videos and it has disappeared! That's okay, I can do it again.

One of my most fave blues and one I do best with only 3 strings.

Thanks, Doug.  I love this song.   Faves are by Gillian Welch and Mississippi John Hurt.

One of your best Uncle John! Your unbusy straight ahead playing, soulful singing and harmonica solos worked perfect in the black and white setting. It took me back in time. A great journey!!!

Thanks AGP.  The ten year old one is gone.  And I missed the 3 year old one.  Darn, I like it better than the new one!

Wrong link for 3 year old version, should be  Make Me a Pallett on Your Floor - L. Bolton  :-)

Good Cover of a Great Old Timey Blues Classic 'UJ', recorded by many, the Mississippi John Hurt being my fave, now along with your 3rd version of course! ;-D

Your early versions haven't disappeared 'Unc",  just had a look around on Utube, and found this one from 3 years ago  Make Me a Pallett on Your Floor - L. Bolton 

and this one from 10 years ago Make Me Down a Pallett on Your Floor - SmilinJackB  :-)

Thanks for the kind words, Andries.  I don't know why some of the old CBN videos disappeared.  My old one was from 2011, still listed, comments still there - but no video.  I just now deleted it.

Did they remove on purpose or just deleted by time , was it 4or 5 years ago? does it disapear in a archive ? i some times wonder ? a suitcase full of blues, this one fitted like a doctors glove, snug and thight , its grown on ye !
