Story

"Crosscut Saw" is a bawdy blues song from the early days of the Delta blues. The song was first released in 1941 by Mississippi bluesman Tommy McClennan and has since been interpreted by many blues artists. "Crosscut Saw" was an early hit for Albert King,   The lyrics are rife with double-entendre.  In the early days of the blues, it was common for unrecorded or unpublished songs to be in the repertoire of many artists.  Such songs were passed around and developed over time without regard to ownership.
