The Five Blind Boys of Alabama – Way Down In the Hole

From The Wire season 1 opening credits.  Originally recorded by Tom Waits in 1987.  This version off the album Spirit of the Century (2001).   Some interesting stuff from the Blind Boys’ wikipedia:

The Blind Boys of Alabama are a gospel group from Alabama that first formed at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind at Talladega, Alabama in 1939. The three main vocalists of the group and their drummer/percussionist are all blind.
