Well if you go down to Deep Elem, put your money in your shoes
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
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, have a little fun
Have that ten 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

When you go down to Deep Elem, have a little fun
Have that ten 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

Well if you go down to Deep Elem, put your money in your shoes
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
