'Never No Mo' Blues' JIMMIE RODGERS (1928) Blues Guitar Legend

Jimmie Rodgers was amazing. The lyrics on 'Never No Mo' Blues' are pretty intense, especially the ending. I don't understand why nobody listens to this stuff these days. Granted it's all 80+ years old, but his lyrics are easily as good if not better than modern music. I know I'll probably get crucified, but I would love to hear a Kanye West or Kid Rock remake of these songs. It won't be as good (of course!) but the music deserves to be shared with todays audience.
