Also look for versions of "Black Jack Davey". Arlo Guthrie sings an Americanized version (with a horn section--cool!) which I think was adapted by Woody hisself. Used to hear it on the radio a lot (70's) so it may even have charted! Starts:

It was late last night when the boss came home
Askin about his lady
The only answer that he got:
"She's gone with the Black Jack Davey,
She's gone with Black Jack Davey."
