Wow. Love the Ram Jam version but never knew it was a cover.

Actually even the Leadbelly version can be considered a cover. That song has a very old and interesting history, much more than most songs.

Black Betty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

But the Ram Jam version kicks the most butt and is probably responsible for more than a few speeding tickets when I was a kid. :D

On the lead singer's axe the pup covers have Gibson engraved, but I can't be certain of the headstock. Really hard to tell.

The second guitar is playing a goldtop.
