lyrics

If you go down to Deep Elem, put your money in your shoes
'Cause the women in Deep Elem, give you the Deep Elem Blues
(refrain)
Aww sweet mama, your daddy's got them deep Elem Blues
Aww sweet mama, your daddy's got them deep Elem Blues

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
(refrain)

Once I knew a preacher, preached The Bible through and through
Went down to Deep Elem, now his preaching days are through
(refrain)

When you go down to Deep Elem, to have a little fun
Have ten dollars when the police man come
(refrain)

When you go down to Deep Elem, put your money in your pants
'Cause the women in Deep Elem don't give a man a chance
(refrain)
