Brown's Ferry Blues lyrics


Album: A Tribute to the Delmore Brothers by The Louvin Brothers

Hard luck poppa cant stand his ground
He was a good poppa but hes down
Lord lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues
Hard luck poppa standing in the rain
If the world was corn he couldn't buy grain
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
The trouble with him he's been too rough
Lord Lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues.

Two old maids playing 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 them Brown's Ferry Blues.

Early to bed and early to rise
And your girl goes out with other guys
Lord Lord got those Brown's Ferry Blues
If you don't believe me try it yourself
Well I tried it and I got left
Lord Lord got them Brown's Ferry Blues.

I gotta gal in Cumberland Gap
Shes gotta boy that calls me Pap
Lord Lord got them Brown's Ferry Blues
I dont smoke and I dont chew
And I dont go with the gals that do
Lord Lord got them Brown's Ferry Blues

I wanna go home but there aint no use
For the jailer man he wont turn me loose
Lord Lord got them Brown's Ferry Blues
Had a good time when I was free
But I let the wrong thing get the best of me
Lord Lord got them Browns Ferry Blues
