"Dying Songwriter's Blues" is an unreleased and rarely performed song by The Avett Brothers.
This video includes "Dying Songwriter's Blues" after a soundcheck of "You Send Me," an old Sam Cook song. Seth Avett is a big fan of Sam Cook, thus the performance.
Correction** I shot this video on 9/16/06 and was surprised to see in on here. You Send Me is indeed a Sam Cooke song. Seth does it here as a sound check. After that song they perform Dying Songwriter’s Blues. It is an original and I only put a short taste on this video as The Avett Brothers request that unreleased songs not be posted online. They also performed the song at a private party in Pinehurst NC on 8/19/05.
