This is the song that Mark Lanegan and Nirvana covered. It is not a Nirvana song, or a Mark Lanegan song. It is a traditional song that Leadbelly was the first to record it. Lanegan and Cobain heard it and loved it.

The final short bit of foolery taken from the singing of Pat Paulsen. This is Video # 20 from the musical lecture "Songs of the West" by Tim McMullen: A folk music odyssey, presenting story songs, work songs, travel songs, love songs, protest songs, and comedy songs performed on the 6-string and 12-string guitar, 6-string banjo, mountain dulcimer, harmonica, and a cappella, culled from the playing of Patrick Sky; Pete Seeger, Mike Nesmith, The Smothers Brothers; Woody Guthrie; Koerner, Ray, and Glover; Huddie Ledbetter (Leadbelly); Biff Rose, Mark Spoelstra; Gene Autry; The Firesign Theatre; Ramblin' Jack Elliott; Tom Paxton; and Pat Paulsen. The text for many of the songs began with THE SONGS OF MAN by Norman Luboff and Win Stracke published in 1965. Variations from the aforementioned performers were included in new arrangements by Tim McMullen. Recorded in 1993, this historical, folk music lecture was created by Tim McMullen in 1980 and performed annually for his American Studies Junior Honors English/Social Studies Team class at El Rancho HIgh School in Pico Rivera, CA. It has been performed nearly every year since 1980 as the class completes its reading of Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." This lecture is a companion to the Woody Guthrie "Grapes of Wrath/Dust Bowl" musical lecture found at *******www.youtube****/TimMcMullen and on the lyrics pages of Manfred Helfert's Woody Guthrie site at *******www.woodyguthrie.de/lyrics.html.

PLEASE NOTE: I divided my uploads between multiple channels, Bookmark this link in your browser for instant access to an index with links to all of John1948's oldies classics. LINK: *******tinyurl****/Channel-Index Freddy Fender was one of the few Hispanic stars in country music, a singer and songwriter whose work was defined largely by its strong Latin sensibility. Born Baldemar Huerta to a family of migrant laborers in San Benito, TX, on June 4, 1937, Fender began playing guitar early in his childhood. After dropping out of school at the age of 16 to join the Marine Corps, he released his first Spanish-language recordings under his given name in 1958. While his initial sides were successful with listeners in Texas and Mexico, in 1959 he decided to adopt his stage name, along with a stronger rockabilly feel, in order to attract "gringo" audiences. The following year, he released the self-penned "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights," his most successful single yet. But in May of 1960, Fender was convicted of marijuana possession, and was sentenced to five years in Louisiana's notorious Angola State Prison (the same correctional facility which once held blues legend Leadbelly). After serving three years, he was paroled thanks to the efforts of Louisiana governor Jimmie Davis, on the condition that upon Fender's release he stay away from the corruptive influences of the music scene. After his parole ended, Fender tried to re-ignite his career, but with the exception of a few scattered nightclub gigs in the New Orleans area, he found little success, and ultimately returned to San Benito. In Texas, he spent several years working as an auto mechanic, and even returned to school to pursue a degree in sociology. In 1974, he met Huey P. Meaux, the owner of the Houston-based Crazy Cajun label; after agreeing on a recording deal, it was Meaux who convinced Fender to steer in the direction of country & western while maintaining his music's Hispanic roots. After Fender's first Meaux-produced single, "Before the Next Teardrop Falls," failed to attract the attention of a major label, it was released on Crazy Cajun; in the first weeks of 1975, the song hit the top of both the country and pop charts, and Fender became an overnight star. For the follow-up, he re-recorded his early single, "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights," and notched his second straight number one country hit. Before the year ended, he had released yet another chart-topper in "Secret Love," and also issued two LPs, Since I Met You Baby and a self-titled effort. Throughout the remainder of the '70s, Fender's success continued, most notably with the number two single "Living It Down" in 1976. That same year, he released two more albums, Your Cheatin' Heart and Rock 'N' Country. In 1977, he also issued a holiday record, Merry Christmas/Feliz Navidad. As the 1980s dawned, however, his popularity began slipping; after his final chart hit, 1983's "Chokin' Kind," he focused on an acting career, highlighted by an appearance in the 1988 Robert Redford film The Milagro Beanfield War. He remained largely silent as a musician until 1990, when he formed the Tex-Mex supergroup Texas Tornados with Doug Sahm, Flaco Jimenez, and Augie Meyers. After three albums, the group disbanded, and Fender again resumed his solo career. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide

Nirvana fue un grupo estadounidense de grunge, procedente de Aberdeen, Washington. Con el éxito del sencillo "Smells Like Teen Spirit", del álbum Nevermind, Nirvana escaló las listas musicales en todo el mundo e inició la explosión de lo que hasta ese momento era punk underground y rock alternativo en la escena musical mundial, en un movimiento al que los medios de la época se referirían como "grunge". Otras bandas de la escena musical de Seattle como Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam y Soundgarden también obtuvieron popularidad y, como resultado, el rock alternativo se convirtió en un género dominante en la radio y la televisión musical durante la primera mitad de la década de 1990. MTV Unplugged in New York es un álbum en vivo de la banda estadounidense de grunge, Nirvana, lanzado en noviembre de 1994. El álbum muestra el concierto acústico que la banda hizo en los estudios Sony Music en Nueva York el 18 de noviembre de 1993. El álbum ganó un premio Grammy por Mejor Álbum de Música Alternativa en 1996 MTV Unplugged in New York fue aclamado por los críticos como prueba de que la banda podía trascender del sonido grunge a los que estaban comúnmente asociados, y también hizo una "radiografía" del diverso gusto de la banda en música, con covers de The Vaselines, David Bowie, los Meat Puppets (que estuvieron acompañándolos en los 3 covers que hicieron de ellos) y Leadbelly. Los críticos resaltaron especialmente en los "íntimos" y "menos ruidosos" arreglos, como el acompañamiento de cuerdas en varias canciones así como la batería de Dave Grohl más suave en comparación con su usual forma de tocar, que permitieron que las excelentes habilidades para escribir canciones de Kurt brillaran en todo el concierto. El álbum abrió su primera semana en el número 1 del Billboard 200. Lista de canciones: 1. "About a Girl" — 3:37 2. "Come As You Are" — 4:13 3. "Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam" (Eugene Kelly/Frances McKee; The Vaselines) - 4:37 4. "The Man Who Sold the World" (David Bowie) - 4:20 5. "Pennyroyal Tea" — 3:40 6. "Dumb" — 2:52 7. "Polly" (Cobain/Nirvana) — 3:16 8. "On a Plain" — 3:44 9. "Something in the Way" — 4:01 10. "Plateau" (Kirkwood; Meat Puppets) — 3:38 11. "Oh, Me" (Kirkwood; Meat Puppets) — 3:26 12. "Lake Of Fire" (Kirkwood; Meat Puppets) — 2:55 13. "All Apologies" — 4:23 14. "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?" (Leadbelly) — 5:08
