Editor's note: I'm no big fan of folk music and much of the guitar songs are just guitar songs to me but Shake Sugaree is pure genius. Even though Dylan and a few others have covered this and other songs by the self-taught, upside down and backwards, Cotten-picking granny, this version with the guitarist's 12 year old granddaughter is spectacular. You'll think so too if you are right in the head.
