The First(Last) Shot Got Him was recorded by Willie Narmour's neighbors: Mississippi John Hurt and the Mississippi Possum Hunters. This recording is a mixture of those versions. Blessed be the Name also comes from John Hurt.

Carrollton (©2004 Bolick) - Pat Conte: guitar and requinto, Trip Henderson: harmonica.
This tune was named after my mother's birthplace and is my attempt to create a tune in Willie Narmour's style. This is enhanced by Pat Conte's unique vision. The website has a more straight forward old-timey rendering.
