Just because those words were the ones that got to be on the record don't mean that it was the only ones that could fit there. We changed them songs around all the time. It don't matter what you want me to listen to right now. I probably never done it again that way anyhow! - Son House, responding when asked to decipher some lyrics from one of his records. Quoted in Woman With Guitar: Memphis Minnie's Blues by Paul and Beth Garon

No, it's in E standard, Chris.  Listen to Son hit the low root of the IV chord on the open fifth string in the first verse, at :27 and :31 as well as in subsequent verses.  It's in E standard for sure.  That note is not available in cross-note.  EDITED TO ADD:  Oops, just realized you were using Son's own parlance, Chris.
All best,
Johnm

Yeah, I took me a little while to figure out you was japing me, Chris.  Doh!
