BOURGEOIS BLUES (Huddie Ledbetter / Alan Lomax) recorded by : Billy Childish; Ry Cooder; Tav Falco; Arlo Guthrie; Leadbelly; Taj Mahal; Odetta; Pete Seeger. Me and my wife went all over town And everywhere we went people turned us down Lord, in a bourgeois town It's a bourgeois town I got the bourgeois blues Gonna spread the news all around Home of the brave, land of the free I don't wanna be mistreated by no bourgeoisie Lord, in a bourgeois town Uhm, the bourgeois town I got the bourgeois blues Gonna spread the news all around Well, me and my wife we were standing upstairs We heard the white man say "I don't want no niggers up there" Lord, in a bourgeois town Uhm, bourgeois town I got the bourgeois blues Gonna spread the news all around Well, them white folks in Washington they know how To call a colored man a nigger just to see him bow Lord, it's a bourgeois town Uhm, the bourgeois town I got the bourgeois blues Gonna spread the news all around I tell all the colored folks to listen to me Don't try to find you no home in Washington, DC `Cause it's a bourgeois town Uhm, the bourgeois town I got the bourgeois blues Gonna spread the news all around (Contributed by Nancy - July 2003)
