Covers: My Old Friend the Blues

Steve Earle released the original version in 1986. I’m putting it here because I like the bluegrass version he did with the Del McCoury band. I found a cover by Percy Sledge who covered other country songs over the years. If you like the Earle/McCoury combination, check out The Mountain (1999) an album of original bluegrass songs written by Earle. There are also other Earle/McCoury videos on YouTube.
