JUG BAND QUARTETTE
Memphis Jug Band

Chicago, November 8, 1934
C-807-1 OK-8966
on RST BDCD-600

You know, way down yonder in Memphis Tennessee.
The jug band music sounds sweet to me.
[chorus]
Sounds so sweet, it's hard to beat.
Jug band music certainly was a treat to me.
I heard the boys playing the other day.
You know those boys drove my blues away.
[chorus]
I went hone, turned on my radio.
I danced along until I broke in my floor.
[chorus]
You know that old lady down there, you know, sitting on a rock.
Had a 40 dollar razor trying to shave their knot.
[chorus]
I told those people way across that hall.
I'm playing this feast and you know that's all.
[chorus]
Now run here, doctor, won't you run here quick.
All he wants is trying to have my hammer fixed.
