Tennessee Stud

Doc Watson and Jack Lawrence:

Johnny Cash:

Porter Wagoner (this one is on here for Porter's outfit alone!)

The time I heard a recording of this tune, I was a teenager, and the performance was by Ramblin Jack Elliott. I thought that performance held up as the best I heard until Johnny Cash recorded it on American Recordings. I hadn't heard Doc Watson do this one until I was surfing around YouTube. Mr. Watson can make magic with any song. I love the way he plays the guitar.
