Thread Name: Origins: Deep Elem Blues / Deep Ellum / Deep Elm
Subject: RE: Origins: Deep Elem Blues / Deep Ellum / Deep Elm
I've had 'Deep Elem Blues' in my repertoire for quite a time playing it sort of Bluegrass style. For a friend to join in on button accordeon, I slowed it down and changed my picking & vocal phrasing. It came out kind of Cajun.
I've just played 'Bouret Blues' by that great Cajun musician Nathan Abshire, low and behold, the tune is 'Deep Elem Blues'. I must have known that tune longer than I realised.
Has anybody got the words to 'Bouret Blues' and a translation to English for interest's sake?
