Honey, Just Allow Me One More Chance (Tidbits)
- This song is creditted jointly to Henry Thomas and Dylan on the album
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, but not in the songbooks.
- Taj Mahal, in a February 1992 interview reproduced in
the liner notes to "Taj's Blues," comments on "Fishin' Blues":
- Henry Thomas. That's the third song [originally recorded for Vocalion in 1928]
in a set of tunes that became very popular [in the 1960's]. Bob Dylan
had a song called "Honey, Won't You Allow Me One More Chance" and he
said that he got the inspiration from some bluesman named Henry from
down in Texas. I never knew who he was talking about, then I got hold
of an album, and then realized, "Oh Yeah! Here it is! Here's the melody
and here's the words."
