"Deep Elm" lyrics

Deep Elm

You go down in Deep Elm
Just to have a little fun
Better have your fifteen dollars
When the policeman comes

Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them Deep Elm blues
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them Deep Elm blues

Now once I knew a preacher
Preached the Bible through and through
He went down in Deep Elm
Now his preaching days are through

Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them Deep Elm blues
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them Deep Elm blues

You go down in Deep Elm
Keep your money in your pants
That redheads in Deep Elm
They don't give a man a chance

Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them Deep Elm blues
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them Deep Elm blues

You go down to Deep Elm
Put your money in your shoes
Them gals down in Deep Elm
Got them Deep Elm blues

Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them Deep Elm blues
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them Deep Elm blues
