The Bourgeois Blues - Leadbelly

[Introduction]

A7 D7  A  E7  A


[Verse 1]

A
Me'n my wife, went all over town
A
Everywhere we go the people would turn us down
          D
Lawd in a bourgeois town,
           A
Hee it's a bourgeois town,
          E7                                             A 
I got the bourgeois blues, I'm gonna spread the news all around


[Verse 2]

A
Me an' Marthy we was standing upstairs
A
I heard a white man say "I don't want no niggers up there"
            D
Lawd he's a bourgeois man
           A
Hee it's a bourgeois town,
          E7                                             A 
I got the bourgeois blues, I'm gonna spread the news all around


[Verse 3]

A
Home of the brave land of the free
A
I don't wanna be mistreated by no bourgeoisie
          D
Lawd in a bourgeois town
           A
Hee it's a bourgeois town,
          E7                                             A 
I got the bourgeois blues, I'm gonna spread the news all around


[Instrumental]

A7  D7  A7  E7 A 


[Verse 4]

A
Me'n my wife went all over town. 
A
Everywhere we go the colored people would turn us down
          D
Lawd in a bourgeois town
           A
Hee it's a bourgeois town,
          E7                                             A 
I got the bourgeois blues, I'm gonna spread the news all around


[Verse 5]

A
The white folks in Washington they know how
A
Chuck a colored man a nickel just to see him bow
          D
Lawd in a bourgeois town
           A
Hee it's a bourgeois town,
          E7                                             A 
I got the bourgeois blues, I'm gonna spread the news all around


[Verse 6]

A
Tell all the colored folks to listen to me
A
Don't try to buy no home in Washington D.C.
              D
'Cause it's a bourgeois town
           A
Hee it's a bourgeois town
          E7                                       A
I got the bourgeois blues an' I'm gonna spread the news
