Thread Name: Lyr Req: Down in Black Bottom
Subject: down in black bottom
Need lyrics or help in buying the CD to the song I heard a few years ago while in Florida, never heard it again, can't find the lyrics, only think I found the artist.

Song...DOWN IN BLACK BOTTOM
Artist? SCRAPPER BLACKWELL .. maybe...

The song goes....

Down in Black Bottom it's such an evil place
Where a man can disappear without a single trace,
Ya talk about them blues; people down there got 'em.
'Cause you ain't got a thing when you're down in Black Bottom.

Then there's a guitar solo... a very good blues song that has haunted me for years...
Thanks...frank
