Dirty Water (mp3)

"Dirty Water" is a 12-bar blues song composed by Ed Cobb and first recorded by the California rock and roll band The Standells in 1966. The song is a paean to the city of Boston and its then-famously polluted Boston Harbor and Charles River. The Boston Red Sox baseball team is well-known for playing the song immediately following home victories, a tradition that began in the 2001 season. DMB played this song during the encore of the second night at Fenway Park in 2009.
