Poor Lazarus

the Back Porch Hounds
Traditional, prison work song collected by Alan Lomax


The first time we played this tune was toward the end of our second gig at Pit to Plate.  We'd not rehearsed it but Dennis just took off on it and we all joined in.  Its become one of our signature songs. The song was featured in the movie Oh Brother Where Art Thou but you'd never know it was the same song by our version.  

Very interesting article about this song and Oh Brother Where Art Thou
