Here's one version. Also have one by the Wilburn Brothers.

DEEP ELM BLUES
version by Jim Greer and the Mac-O-Chee Valley Folks

When you go down in Deep Elm just to have a little fun,
Better have fifteen dollars when that policeman runs.

Refrain: Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got them Deep Elm blues
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got them Deep Elm blues.

When you go down in Deep Elm, put your money in your pants.
Them blood-suckin' women won't give a man a chance. (Refrain)

I used to know a preacher, read the bible through and through.
He come down in Deep Elm, got them Deep Elm blues. (Refrain)
