Weeping Willow/Corrina

This demo is an interpretation of a song I learned many years ago from Michael Cooney by way of banjo player Merrion Wood. Oddly enough, Bert Jansch also recorded a slightly similar ‘Weeping Willow Blues’, and both used 12-string for their recordings. Just to be awkward, I play it slide. :)

The ‘Sometimes I think you’re too sweet to die…’ verse is also associated with Rabbit Brown’s ‘James Alley Blues’, widely known through Judy Roderick’s rewrite ‘Born in the Country’.
