    Apart from the vocal, all other elements are original work..;-)

    "Black Betty" is a 20th century African-American work song often credited to Huddie "Lead Belly" Ledbetter (Who's acapella features in this track) as the author, though the earliest recordings are not by him. Some sources claim it is one of Lead Belly's many adaptations of earlier folk material; in this case an 18th century marching cadence about a flintlock musket. There are numerous recorded versions, including a cappella, folk, and rock arrangements. The best known modern recordings are rock versions by Ram Jam and Spiderbait.
