If it's not Skip James, then how about Johnny Temple:

Well that is interesting...
I wasn't thinking of Come On In My Kitchen, which I wouldn't say is a "popular" song per the masses as much as the song I'm thinking of.
It certainly does show how lyrics are "borrowed" over time though...

With that I will say the song I was suggesting is Mercury Blues with K C Douglas first recording it in 1948 after he co-wrote it with Robert Geddins. It's been covered by everyone from Meatloaf to Dwight yoakam.
But it's apparent that Mr Johnson was singing about that joker a decade earlier than K C was...

(coot got this while i was posting, leaving up for interest)

I say give Stephen this one for calling "Mercury Blues" out of his own recall.

I went whorin on google, deducted from "Mercury Blues/John Lee Hooker" being "half right", factor in "Bramlett 9 years old when first rcorded"

So - 1948

Ok, cant be John Lee Hooker cuz his first recording "Boogiie Chillen" top race record of 1948

Which leaves the other half of half right- "Mercury Blues" or "Mercury Boogie" recorded by K.C. Douglas whoever that was, in 1948.

None of which I knew, so Stephen gets my turn.

I thought coot because he guessed Robert Johnson. Who I'm guessing is the first one to actually sing the line about that joker getting lucky.
Even though I imagine Mr Johnson could have very well borrowed it from someone else before him.

Yeah I saw that, makes sense. Seems to me if a guess checks the boxes it is like Jeopardy where you get credit

And as far as where did Robert Johnson pick it up . . . well, go back far enough we might not be too comfortable with who come up with the Very First Blues.

No biggie any way you look at it. I'll leave it up to Stephen. He can go or defer to me and I'll put one up.

Speaking of borrowing lines. From my vantage point it seems the site let you borrow my sig line!

This obscure group formed in Boulder, Colorado in the early 1970's. Despite a great deal of talent among the group's members they were never able to secure a record contract. However, many years later the archives of the guitarist released on cd what would have been their original album and also a separate cd from live radio broadcasts.

Sadly, the guitarist died in '76 from a drug overdose. Present at his final concert in Miami were Allen Woody and Tinsley Ellis. The guitarist eventually formed his own solo band but prior to that replaced two other famous guitarists, from two separate well known and successful groups.

The bassist was a long time member of another famous performer's group and appeared on one of the largest selling live albums ever.

The singer would later become the President of the re-formed Capricorn Records label.

What was the name of the Boulder based band?

I don't know about the rest but the guitarist sounds like Tommy Bolin so I'll say Zephyr??

The guitarist is indeed Bolin. He replaced Joe Walsh in The James Gang and Ritchie Blackmore in Deep Purple.

The group in question here is the one that preceded Zephyr.

Ah! I don't know of anything older than Zephyr so I'm out. I could Google it but that would be cheating

Other clues could possibly only be the names of the other band members. They had no releases during the time they were together so I can't add anything like that.

Personally, since it was an obscure band, I don't really care if someone uses google in this case.

Bassist was Stanley Sheldon who was in Peter Frampton's band and appeared on "Frampton Comes Alive" which sold multi-million copies back in the mid-seventies. Who didn't have a copy of that when it came out?

Tommy's Wikipedia information holds the answer. The group is described as a jazz/Rock/fusion band which was together during 1972.
