Monday Music: Worried Man Blues (Woody Guthrie)

"Worried Man Blues" is a song that falls into the categories of Folk Music and Roots Music. It was recorded in 1930 by The Carter Family, and in 1969 by Johnny Cash, who married into the Carter family. In between those recordings, it was covered by Big Joe Williams, Woody Guthrie, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and the Kingston Trio. I has been covered in later years by Devo, Van Morrison, Elliott Murphy, and others. There is no more authentic rendering of the song than in this recording by Woody Guthrie.
