Thread Name: Lyr Req: Brown's Ferry Blues
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Brown's Ferry Blues
In response to this revived thread I've dug out my recording of Tom Paley at Sharp's Folk Club on 16-1-1996, which includes Brown's Ferry Blues. Just four verses, all of which are in one or other of the versions above except for the following half verse.
Hardluck papa standin' in the snow
His knees knock together but he's rarin' to go.
Lawd! Lawd! Got those* Brown's Ferry blues.
*Tom sang "those" rather than "them" throughout.
