about

(Traditional).

A song about the red-light district in Dallas TX along Elm Street. A place where all colors, all music and nightlife would mix together and produce great stories of gambling and dance, luck and woe, love and pain. The sun would set and social lines disappeared for a night until the sun rose again the next morning. A place where anything could happen.

lyrics

If you go down to Deep Ellum
Put your money in your shoe
For the women in Deep Ellum got them Deep Ellum Blues

Oh, Sweet Mama
Daddy’s got them Deep Ellum Blues
Oh, Sweet Mama
Daddy’s got them Deep Elum Blues

Yea once I had a girlfriend
She meant the world to me
She went down to Deep Ellum, now she ain’t what she used to be

Oh, Sweet Mama
Daddy’s got them Deep Ellum Blues
Oh, Sweet Mama
Daddy’s got them Deep Elum Blues

Once I knew a Preacher
Preached the bible through and through
He went down to Deep Ellum and now he’s preachin’ days are through

Oh, Sweet Mama
Daddy’s got them Deep Ellum Blues
Oh, Sweet Mama
Daddy’s got them Deep Elum Blues

If you go down to Deep Ellum
Put your money in your pants
For the women in Deep Ellum they don’t give this boy a chance
