If you go to this page: http://guitarvideos.com/dvd/pdf.htm , near the bottom there's two John Miller books of Hurt tab. I think the first one has "Spike Driver's Blues"in it. Great that it's available on that site - and it's the entire song, not just a verse or break.

Thanks again Shaw!

I don't know about anyone else but I find John Hurt stuff (have tried stagolee and this one) the hardest to play and get to sound right - not the left hand but keeping the alternating bass and melody going with the right hand. He was one hell of a player!
