CC Rider

(Gertrude “Ma” Rainey, et. al.) – Once again, this is one that came from the great ether.  Everybody and their mother—literally, as the first recorded version was done by Ma Rainey in 1924—has recorded this song, including Blind Lemon Jefferson, Big Bill Brooonzy, Mississippi John Hurt, Lead Belly, Elvis, Chuck Berry, etc.  I learned it from Caroline Sanford and Cecilia Chilton at a bluegrass jam in 2007.  Caroline played guitar and hollered out, “Let’s do it jug band style” and let rip with that great bump!—chicy—bomp—bomp—bump! rhythm.  I’m pretty sure she got her version from Old Crow Medicine Show, but shhh, don’t tell them.
