Deep Elem Blues

print

When you go down in Deep Elem
Just to have a little fun
Better have fifteen dollars
When that policeman come

   Oh sweet mama
   Daddy’s got them Deep Elem blues
   Oh sweet mama
   Daddy’s got them Deep Elem blues

When you go down in Deep Elem
Put you money in your pants
Those Deep Elem women
They don’t give a man a chance

When you go down to Deep Elem
Put your money in your socks
Them Deep Elem women
They will throw you on the rocks

I used to know a preacher
Preached the bible through and through
He went down to Deep Elem
Got them Deep Elem blues

Now once I had a sweetheart
Meant the world to me
Went down to Deep Elem
She ain’t what she used to be
