Covers: Broke Down Engine

“Broke Down Engine” was first released by Blind Willie McTell in 1931. He re-recorded it in 1949 on the terrific album Atlanta Twelve String. The album has much better sound quality than the old blues records and McTell’s performance is excellent.

Bob Dylan covered it in 1993.

Lyrics for Dylan’s version
