Otherwise John Hardy by Leadbelly is oldtastic. The Gun Club do a nice version too.

They're all well old. That'll do for now.
exactly what 'dust my broom' was a metaphor for. We had to take it in turns to hog the stereo and one of the old crones would chuck on blues records, of which every single one invariably had a version of that song. WTF does it actually mean?
Huh? I thought the meaning of that song - like the meaning of almost every song back then - was "I'm horny, I need a chick to screw".
but the actual components of the metaphor and what they stood for was beyond all of us.
