david coverversions: i fought the law

the writing of this pop standard is sometimes wrongly accredited to buddy holly. maybe because it was written by a cricket and performed by the crickets after he died. this cricket in question is sonny curtis, rejoining buddy holly & the crickets just before the day the music died. the most recognized version of this song was cranked out by the bobby fuller four and charted in the top ten just before bobby fuller apparently committed suicide by beating the shit out of himself and then snacking on some gasoline-flavored rags. if anyone has other versions not given, like the original crickets version? maybe send em?
