This is an old blues tune first recorded by Henry Whitter, a white blues guitarist, in 1924. https://folkways-media.si.edu/liner_notes/smithsonian_folkways/SFW40221.pdf It is also said that this was a song about the Great Depression and the dust bowl migrants, you can infer that too from Woody Guthrie’s lyrics. https://www.loc.gov/item/ihas.200197402/
I heard Phil Wiggins, a blues harmonica player, doing this tune and it was really interesting to see how the blues version evolved into a bluegrass tune.
