They claim Stewart's song Corrina, Corrina is "nearly identical" to the track Corrine, Corrina Chatmon wrote in the late 1920s, and contest the rocker's tune contains "substantially similar defining compositional elements, including, but not limited to lyrics, melody, rhythm, tempo, meter, key, and title".

The Chatmon heirs claim the blues pioneer's song is protected by copyright registrations in 1929 and 1932 on two different versions of Corrine, Corrina and they are demanding statutory damages, actual damages and an injunction, according to Billboard.com.

Ironically, Bo Carter's tune has been covered by the likes of Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan but the suit doesn't mention them.
