Learning "The Streets of Laredo" sent me back to an older song called "The Unfortunate Rake"... turns out to have a lot of lyrical similarities to "St. James' Infirmary Blues". So I cobbled this together.

Nice! Very soulful singing. ...

Agree, lots of emotion there, which is pretty much the definition of blues I think. The voice and mandolin work good together on these songs. :mandosmiley: :)
