I didn't get to know Lead Belly real well, we just bumped into each other in the recording studio. The conversation went something like "Oops! Excuse me." I didn't mean to bump his elbow while he was putting his guitar in his case. It was a very crowded little radio studio.

He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
Never has no money
And he never was satisfied
But he was a friend of mine.
