Compelling lyrics and music, both with plenty of drive and momentum. Both contributors really brought out the best in each other. An immersive song, toothsome and rich in flavour.

finally solved the mystery of this song. it has nothing do with the the slave song lomax discovered black betty,nor is it included in lomaxs volume of cowboy songs and frontier ballads but id. it is an ancient ballad titled Black Bess; or, the knight of the road: a tale of the good old times/ ...the refrain, which goes "my black betty best" must have led to the confusion

This is fantastic story telling! I really LOVE the images in the lyrics, how the story evolves with enough ambiguity to keep the listener intrigued and engaged, and the strong phrases throughout. The groove is great and the vocals are superb. Link worked fine.

Wow, this is incredible! I loved watching this one progress, there is a slight blue grass fee to this that make it move at a really nice clip. The delivery of the vocals it perfection, great job to both of you!

Great take on this, vocals go along well with the story nature of this track.
