I Thought I Heard Buddy Bolden Say

This song is by Ramblin' Jack Elliott and appears on the Compilation album The Lost Topic Tapes: Isle Of Wight 1957 (2004).

I thought I heard Buddy Bolden shout
Open up that window, and let the foul air out
Open up that window, and let the foul air out
Thought I heard him shout

I thought I heard Frankie Dusen shout
Funky butt funky butt, take it away
Way down in the alley, take him away
I thought I heard Frankie Dusen shout

I thought I heard Judge Fogarty shout
Thirty days in the market, take him away
Give him a good broom to sweep with, take him away
I thought I heard Judge Fogarty say

I thought I heard Frankie Dusen shout
Give me that money gal I'm gonna beat it out
Give me that money like I splined you, I'm gonna beat it out
I thought I heard Frankie Dusen shout

I though I heard old King Arthur
Say hey-hey, oh he's gone away
Everybody's old and grey
