Listening to the Delmore Brothers singing Brown's Ferry Blues right now. It almost sounds like a topical song concerning the plight of our hangdog PM and his sinking ship.

Hard luck poppa, a-countin' his toes,
You can smell his feet wherever he goes,
    Lord, Lord, and he's got those Brown's Ferry Blues.
Hard luck poppa done lost his stuff
The trouble with him he's played too rough.
    Lord, Lord, and he's got those Brown's Ferry Blues.

Hardluck poppa standing in the rain,
If the world was corn he couldn't buy grain.
    Lord, Lord, got those Brown's Ferry Blues
Hardluck poppa standing in the snow,
His knees knock together but he's raring to go.
    Lord, Lord, got those Brown's Ferry Blues.
