Viene anche spesso attribuita a Josh White, ma nelle note al disco ‎‎“That's Why We're Marching: World ‎War II and the American Folksong Movement” pubblicato nel 1996 dalla Smithsonian Folkways ‎Recordings la canzone viene definitivamente assegnata all’icona del blues Huddie William ‎Ledbetter detto “Leadbelly”.‎
