Stealin' - chords, tab and comments

At the bottom you'll find a link to the complete lyrics.

This funny song came to life with the jug band tradition during the twenties. First known recording was with Memphis Jug Band in 1928. For some reasons, several artists recorded it in the sixties, with various lines and verses. It has now and then erroneously been credited Gus Cannon, but he never even recorded it as far as I know. These lines are taken from Arlo Guthries version on his 1969 album "Running Down the Road". This version was featured in the film "Two-Lane Blacktop".
