I've been feeling sick lately, which puts me in the mood for acoustic blues. Hence: hardtime. This is somewhat of a cover of Hard Time Killing Floor Blues by Skip James who wrote it in the early 30s when he moved from Mississippi to Chicago and discovered there weren't any jobs there either, or something like that.
The only reason squares like me have heard of this guy is because the Chris Thomas King cover of this same song was featured in the O Brother, Where Art Thou? sound track.
Mine is not the most accurate cover, but here it is anyway. Just me, mexican guitar, and a mic. One track.
