Editor Note

Steele says he learned the tune from a record in Harlan Co., but admits he might have added some elements himself - it bears little resemblance to the Samantha Bumgarner and Frank Hutchison records of the same name. AFS card identifies it as "The Weary Blues," but Steele sings "worried" and clearly calls it "The Worried Blues."?�
