yeah hey now the song you call Black Girl,done by Leadbelly and covered by Nirvana was recorded by Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys in the 30s as In The Pines and as such is a standard in bluegrass,I believe it was recorded by the Carter Family as well Monroes version is haunting with a yodel part in a real blues style


in fact, Ken Kesey's second novel "Sometimes A Great Notion", uses the Leadbelly lyric, as a title.
