Deep Elem Blues

This song is by Grateful Dead and appears on the album Reckoning (1981).

If you go down to Deep Elem
Put your money in your shoes
The women in Deep Elem
Got them Deep Elem blues

Oh, sweet mama
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues
Oh, sweet mama
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues

Once, I knew a preacher
Preached the bible through and through
He went down to Deep Elem
Now, his preaching days are through

Oh, sweet mama
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues
Oh, sweet mama
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues

When you go down to Deep Elem
Put your money in your socks
The redheads in Deep Elem
They'll put you on the rocks

Oh, sweet mama
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues
Oh, sweet mama
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues

When you go down to Deep Elem
To have a little fun
Have your fifteen dollars ready
When the policeman comes

Oh, sweet mama
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues
Oh, sweet mama
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues

Go down to Deep Elem
Put your money in your shoes
The women in Deep Elem
Got them Deep Elem blues

Oh, sweet mama
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues
Oh, sweet mama
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues
Oh, sweet mama
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues



Additional verses:

Once I had a girlfriend
She meant the world to me
She went down to Deep Elem
Now, she ain't what she used to be

When you go down to Deep Elem
Put your money in your pants
'Cause the women in Deep Elem
They don't give a man a chance
