"...I played this song that they used to play over the radio, "Stackolee." Now that's real old. The song came out, I believe that song came out before I was born or after I was born one... But I just got to the place where, when, uh, that I remember that song, and I started to sing it even before it got popular... on radio, because I could remember it, and I started to singing it. I started singing it in the white nightclubs that we used to play, you know... I played that song and sang it myself. See, when I heard it on radio, I said, "I bet you somebody done copied it from me." [Laughter]"
