Alicia Keys reworks a Carter Family classic

I'm listening to Alicia Key's "Here" album and got a great surprise when the song "Pawn it All" came on. She has reworked the Carter Family's "Gold Watch and Chain" into something that is all her own. The Carter Family's song, recorded in 1933, was a reworking of the 1879 Thomas P. Westendorf song, "Is There No Kiss for Me Tonight, Love."
