Traditional song from circa 1910- probably based on a true story of a Saint Louis murder.

Nice history and good performance all around John.

Thanks, Rick.  Yup on that guitar, it is a keeper.  Builder, Michael Ballerini is an artist in multiple ways.

Great cover Uncle! What stands out is the perfect tone and strumming, that guitar is singing!  Of course no one sings a story like you, and the Iowa sax is in very fine form.

Thanks, Danny!  I would too.  I actually have a Stetson.  It looks almost like my regular blues hat, but fits me not as well.  I bought it for $5.00 at a yard sale.

great job Unc, I can kind of sympathize with him getting cheated out of his brand new stetson hat
