  • The vast majority of covers have been mentioned by several other users. Though over the years, I've always been partial to this cover by The Byrds. Back at Harvard Law, Biff, Chip, Dexter, Larry and myself used to play this song continuously -

    This is one of the earliest examples of a turning point for me in terms of really enjoying Caucasian music. Since then things have really opened up!

    The original version by The Leaves is also noteworthy -

    Roy buchanan did the meanest version of it, I'm seriously thinking the guy invented shredding as that song has. He was around well before ozzy & metal bands started.

    But its a real popular american folk song hundreds have done it

  • Type O Negative did a cover where they slightly redid the lyrics called Hey Pete
