Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bourgeois town? / Bourgeois Blues
Subject: RE: Bourgeois Blues as sung by Leadbelly
The background to the song is given on the video "A Vision Shared: A Tribute to Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly" (1989). It is pretty much as given above but good to hear it direct from Harold Leventhal. On the video (and accompanying album) it is performed by Taj Mahal.
