George Reneau – “The Lonesome Road” | Public Domain 4U

Here’s a very early version of the American Country and Blues music classic, “The Lonesome Road,” as performed by Country Music pioneer, George Reneau. The song was later recorded under the titles “Goin’ Down the Road Feelin’ Bad,” or “I Ain’t Gonna Be Treated This Way” by Woody Guthrie, Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, Roy Hall, Elizabeth Cotten, the Grateful Dead and many others. George Reneau recorded this gem with guitar and harmonica for Edison Records in 1925.
