DEEP ELLUM BLUES (DEEP ELM)
(Shelton Brothers)
HANK THOMPSON (CAPITOL, 1958)

You go down in Deep Ellum
Just to have a little fun
Better have your fifteen dollars
When that policeman comes
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them deep ellum blues
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them deep ellum blues

Now, once I knew a preacher
Preached the bible through and through
He went down in Deep Ellum
Now his preachin' days are through
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them deep ellum blues
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them deep ellum blues

You go down in Deep Ellum
Keep your money in your pants
Them red heads in Deep Ellum
They don't give a man a chance
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them deep ellum blues
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them deep ellum blues

You go down in Deep Ellum
Keep your money in your shoes
Them gals down in Deep Ellum
Got them Deep Ellum blues
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them deep ellum blues
Oh, sweet mama
Papa's got them deep ellum blues
