Thread Name: Lyr Req: Deep Elm Blues
Subject: Lyr Add: DEEP ELM BLUES
Lone Star Cowboys' version (Victor 23843, Bluebird B-6001; Chicago, 1933) is in Folk Muisic in America, vol. 12: Songs of Local History & Events [LP] (Library of Congress LBC 12, 1978).

DEEP ELM BLUES

Now when you go down to Deep Elm just to have a little fun
You better have your fifteen dollars when the police man comes

Aw sweet mama, Daddy's got them Deep Elm blues

Now when you go down to Deep Elm put your money in your shoe
'Cause the woman in Deep Elm got them Deep Elm blues

Once I had a sweetheart, she meant the world to me
She took a trip to Deep Elm, now she ain't what she used to be

Pick that thing boy, pick it!

Once I knew a preacher, he preached the Bible through and through
He took a trip to Deep Elm, now his preachin' days are through

Aw, work on it!

Now when you go down in Deep Elm put your money in your socks
Or the women in Deep Elm, well they'll put you on the rocks
