Based on Curtis’ arrangement of John Henry, which is based in turn on Uncle Dave Macon’s version. Andy chose these verses from among the multitude in existence to tell the classic man-versus-machine folk legend. Curtis thought it would be fun to arrange it with a trio on top for this recording to embellish the theme a little bit.
