Covers: Don’t Let Your Deal Go Down

The original version is by Charlie Poole with the North Carolina Ramblers and was recorded in 1925.  Loudon Wainwright III recorded a two-CD tribute to Poole in 2009 called High Wide and Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project which included covers and new songs.

While looking for YouTube links, I ran across a terrific instrumental version by Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys from 1940.

Different versions of the song have slight variations on the name of it
