Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Jim Crow Blues
I think that's pretty good Jim. I'd say verse two second line is:

I don't give a doggone if my black soul should freeze.

Verse 3:

I gotta have that old welcome, don't need no sympathy.
These old easy walkers gonna give my ankles the blues.
Lord, when my girl hear about this, lord, that'll be bad news.

verse 5:

Lord, but if I get up there, weather don't suit,
I don't find no brown, go and tell that bossman of mine,
Lord, I'm ready to come back to my Jim Crow town.

What do others think?
