R L Burnside 'Shake 'em on down'

We haven't had any blues recently on this blog so let's take care of that oversight right now with this enjoyable groove from the great R L himself. 'Shake 'em on down' - who did the original? I'm guessing (and I'm guessing mind) it might be Tommy McClennan. It has been around the block a few times in different hands - Bukka White, Doctor Ross...the list is long. This version seems inspired by the Fred McDowell version.
