Thread Name: Lyr Req: Jim Crow Blues (from Leadbelly)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Jim Crow Blues - LEAD BELLY version
Bra John done told me too, this old Jim Crow ism's done bad luck to me and you. I have been traveling from toe to tow, everywhere I have been I find some old Jim Crow. One thing people, I want everybody to know; you gonna find some Jim Crow every place you go. Down in Louisiana and Tennessee; Georgia's a mighty fine place to go and get together and break up this old Jim Crow. I told everybody over the radio, "Make up your mind and get together, break up this old Jim Crow." I'm gonna tell you people something that you don't know, there's a lot of Jim Crow in a moving picture show. I'm gonna sing this verse and I ain't gonna sing no more. Please get together and break up this old Jim Crow.
