My favorite is probably Muddy Waters'. Little Walter's harp is amazing - rhythmic and melodic - and the bass and drums are probably the best example I can think of a perfect blues rhythm section.

My favorite version of the song would have to be John Mooney's.

Clearly Bukka White's.
Although Big Joe Williams did a helluva job too..

Seriously, my favourite (for the intro) is a version by I Can't Remember Who, but I think it was a band called "Westwind" (something like that).

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Mar-31-06 AT 01:26 PM (EST)]Well sad to say, but my least favorite of this apart from pub-rock drivel, is Fred McDowell's version....
I love Fred, but this particular song from him I just never really liked so much. (The intro was great though! "My name is Fred McDowell, people call me Mississippi Fred McDowell, but my home...." etc..)
