The Holy Modal Rounders (Peter Stampfel and Steve Weber).  In some later configurations of the group, the actor/playwriter Sam Shepard served as drummer.  Stampfel married Betsy Wollheim and became an associate editor ar DAW Books.  According to The Holy Modal Rounders Facebook page, Steve Weber is immortal.

Two somewhat different versions, one by W. C. Handy, of this song were published in 1915.  the versions, both combined and adapted has become a jug band and blues standard.  More than 45 artists have recorded the song over the years, including Duke Ellington, Lena Horne, Louis Armstrong, Janis Joplin, Willie Nelson, and Jelly Roll Morton.
