Those Deep Elem Blues / Aren’t only a song, you know / They’re pieces of art!
Note on picture and slideshow above: My blue pottery collection, one of a kind. Each piece a bona fide find!
And the Grateful Dead’s famous Deep Elem Blues song, another all-time favorite, is right here:
And the absolutely incredible lyrics, in case you’re wondering, are:
If You Go Down To Deep Elem Put Your Money In Your Shoes
The Women In Deep Elem They Give You The Deep Elem Blues
Oh, 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
Once I Knew A Preacher, Preached The Bible Thru And Thru
He Went Down To Deep Elem, Now His Preaching Days Are Thru
When You Go Down To Deep Elem To Have A Little Fun,
Have Your Ten Dollars Ready When The Police Man Comes
When you go down to Deep Elem put your money in your pants
Cause the women in Deep Elem they don’t give a man a chance
Oh, Sweet Mama, Your Daddy’s Got Them Deep Elem Blues.
