LOU'SIANA LOW-DOWN BLUES Spencer Williams as rec by Bessie Smith July 22nd 1924 New York Lou'siana, Lou'siana, Mama's got the low-down blues! Lou'siana, Lou'siana, Mama's goin' on a cruise! Tonight when I start walkin', Although the road is hard, I'm gonna keep on walkin' Till I get in my own back yard! Mississippi River, Mississippi River, I know it's deep and wide, Mississippi River, I know it's deep and wide, Won't be satisfied till I get on the other side! Goin' to keep on trampin', goin' keep on trampin' till I get on solid ground, Goin' to keep on trampin' till I get on solid ground, On my way to Dixie, thought I'm Lou'siana bound! Got a low-down feelin', a low-down feelin' I can't lose my heavy load, Got a low-down feelin'I can't lose my heavy load, My home ain't up north, it's further down the road!
