Subject: CRD: Deep Elem Blues

Here's "Deep Elem Blues" as done by Jerry Garcia and his (then new, now ex)
wife, Sara, on a 1963 bootleg. They do it bluegrass style. Very nice! 

"Deep Elem" is Elm Street, the old red-light district in (I think?) Dallas.


CRD: Deep Elem Blues (traditional, CRD by Bo Parker, Bo.Parker@msfc.nasa.gov)

G
Once I knew a preacher,
Preached the Bible through and through,
He went down to Deep Elem,
Now his preachin' days are through.

Chorus:

C7
Oh sweet mama
                                G
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues.
D7
Oh sweet mama
                                G
Your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues.

G
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.

[chorus]

G
When you go down to Deep Elem,
Put your money in your socks.
'Cause them women in Deep Elem
Will sure put you on the rocks.

[chorus]

G
If you go down to Deep Elem
To have a little fun,
Have your ten dollars ready
When the policeman comes.

[chorus]

Enjoy
