Casey Bill Weldon was a great blues guitar player and singer. There are some blues scholars who believe he was briefly married to Memphis Minnie. He had written a song called WPA Blues which protested the WPA project that was going to tear down the building he lived in. He later wrote this song which has a woman threatening to leave her pimp if he does not get a good job working for the WPA. The song was used in the play “American Deal” in 2009.
