Fun! First some dead obvious ones, if aliens landed and were inquiring about country blues. Also trying not to repeat what others have posted:

1. Pony Blues - Charlie Patton
2. Canned Heat Blues - Tommy Johnson
3. I Belong to the Band - Rev. Gary Davis
4. Funny Feeling Blues - Blind Boy Fuller
5. God Moves on the Water - Blind Willie Johnson
6. Devil Got My Woman - Skip James taken ;)
7. Matchbox Blues - BLind Lemon Jefferson
8. Ain't No Tellin' - Mississippi John Hurt
9. Shake 'Em On Down - Bo Carter
10. Stealin' - Memphis Jug Band

Will think more about the less obvious...

Oh, hell - how could I forget:

Last Kind Words Blues - Geeshie Wiley

Johnm:


Whoops, speaking of forgetting--Catfish Blues by Robert Petway
All best,
Johnm

Montgomery:
This is too difficult.? Quite arbitrarily:
1. Pony Blues - Patton taken ;)
2. 22-20 - Skip James
3. Mama 'Taint Long 'Fore Day - McTell
4. Last Kind Word- Geechie Wiley taken ;)
5. I Do - Wilkins
6. Frisco Town - Memphis Minnie
7. Downtown Blues - Frank Stokes
8. Lonesome Cell - Blind Lemon
9. Cottonfield Blues - Akers and Callicott taken ;)

I can think of at least 68 choices for #10, so I won't commit...

Do you mean Long Lonesome Blues, or maybe Lonesome House Blues...  or maybe Prison Cell Blues...

Yes to all?
