Here’s a nice crooked rag. Every other line is one measure short. This isn’t the Brown’s Ferry Blues that I learned, but I really like this nonetheless.

As an interesting note, there is a Brown's Ferry in Alabama, not too far from where I used to live.  It now hosts four rickety nuclear reactors with horrible safety records that are likely to pop at any time and render most of north Alabama and southern Tennessee unlivable!
