​Jonestown Blues

This song is by Banjo Joe and appears on the album The Complete Works (1927-1930) (1975) by ​Cannon's Jug Stompers.

Man, I left Lula, went to Jonestown
Man, I left Lula, went to Jonestown
Said a Jonestown brown, boys, sure did make me frown

Spoken: Play it now, boys

Said I left Jonestown, too small a burg for me
I said Jonestown too small a burg for me
Well, I left Jonestown, went back to Tennessee

Well, Jonestown, boys, too small a burg for me
Said Jonestown, boy, too small a burg for me
I left Jonestown, made for Tennessee

When I got to Memphis, I lied my banjo down
Said when I got to Memphis, I lied my banjo down
I got full of my good whiskey, good girl made me clown

Spoken: Now play it, boys
