Lyr Req: Deep Bottom Blues

From: fsalyer@mounet.com

I am looking for the lyrics to an old blues song that may be titled "Deep Bottom Blues" or possibly "Deep Velum Blues". One part of the song goes, "when you go too deep bottom, put your money in your shoes, for the women in deep bottom, has got those deep bottom blues or will take it away from you". Any info on where I can find these lyrics would be greatly appreciated.

A few verses are in the database as "Deep Elm Blues."
Elm is pronounced El-um. Deep Elum is a section of downtown Dallas.

I've also heard a version:

When you go down to Black Bottom put your money in your shoe
Cause them Black Bottom women got them Black Bottom Blues.

I'm pretty sure I posted the lyrics to a version of Black Bottom Blues a few months ago. Search the forum.
