Dave Van Ronk just missed the boat—check out the Cohen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis to get my meaning.
"Hang Me, Oh Hang Me" is one of his best efforts, but it didn't receive the deserved attention in 1964- probably because Van Ronk's pal and protégé (Bob Dylan) was vacuuming up all the airtime afforded to folk music.
