Salty Dog

I like to follow the interesting blog “bumbastories” written by Stephen Baum [= Bumba], L.A. – his continuing journey through the history of blues music inspired me to take a look at the old song SALTY DOG:

I should have played:
A – F#m – B7 – B7 – E7 – E7 – A – E7


professional versions of the song:
Bela Fleck, Earl Scruggs – Salty Dog

Mississippi John Hurt:
