Deep Elem Blues

When you go down to Deep Elem
just to have a little fun
Better have fifteen dollars
when that policeman comes...

Chorus
4 Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got them Deep Elem 1 Blues
5 Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got them Deep Elem 1 Blues

Once I knew a preacher
preached the Bible through and through
He went down to Deep Elem
now his preaching days are through...

Once I had a little girl
she meant the world to me
Went down to Deep Elm
now she ain't what she used to be...

When you go down to Deep Elem
put some money in your shoes
'Cause the women in Deep Elem
got them Deep Elem Blues...

When you go down to Deep Elem
put your money in your pants
Cause the women in Deep Elem
they won't give a man a chance...

It’s on Strum Machine!
