Delmore Brotherís

Bluebird 1935

 

original key <Fsharp>

 

Hard luck papa canít stand his ground

Was a good pap but heís done gone down

Lord, lord got them Brown Ferry Blues

Hard luck papa standing in the rain
If the world was corn he couldn't buy grain
Lord Lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues

 

Two old maids a-sitting in the sand
Each one wishing that the other was a man
Lord Lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues
Two old maids done lost their style
If you want to be lucky you got to smile
Lord Lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues.

 

Hard luck poppa counting his toes
You can smell his feet wherever he goes
Lord Lord. got those Brown's Ferry Blues
Hard luck poppa can't do his stuff
Trouble with him he's been too rough
Lord, lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues.

Early to bed & early to rise

& your girl goes out with other guys

Lord, lord got them Brown Ferry blues

If you donít believe try it yourself

I tried it and I got left

Lord, lord, got them Brown Ferryís blues

 

I got a girl in Cumberland Gap

She got a boy calls me pap

Lord, lord, got them Brown Ferryís blues

I donít smoke and I donít chew

I donít go with the girls that do

Lord, lord got them Brown Ferryís blues
