My band does a great cover of St. James Infirmary Blues. What else should we do that's in the same vein?

Here's a bozillion .mp3s of St. James
so you can get a feel for it. It looks like it's been categorized under pre-war blues. It sounds great - we do it as a three-piece... guitar, banjo, fiddle with three-part vocal harmonies. It plays well on the fiddle - what other tunes capture this kind of dark, painful sound in a blues way that translates well to string band?
