"This song is about my great grandfather - Tom Rushing. He was deputy sheriff in Merigold, MS. He arrested Charlie Patton, and apparently was one of the few cops in the Delta at the time who wasn't horribly racist. He died when I was young, but I grew up with him. He was a good man."
Reall cool stuff...anyways, here's the lesson. If any of you often find it challenging to learn some of these old blues tunes, then I'd recommend working this one out. I can see it being a good stepping-stone to other tunes.
