Better have your fifteen dollars when the policeman comes
Oh sweet mama papa got them Deep Elem blues
Oh sweet mama papa got them Deep Elem blues

Now once I knew a preacher Preached the Bible through and through
He went down to Deep Elem now his preachin' days are through
Oh sweet mama papa got them Deep Elem blues
Oh sweet mama papa got them Deep Elem blues
[ sax ]
When you go down to Deep Elem put your money in your pants
The women in Deep Elem they don't give a man a chance
Oh sweet mama papa got them Deep Elem blues
Oh sweet mama papa got them Deep Elem blues
[ guitar ]
If you go down to Deep Elem, put your money in your shoes
Them gals down in Deep Elem got them Deep Elem blues
Oh sweet mama papa got them Deep Elem blues
Oh sweet mama papa got them Deep Elem blues
