Hi Family! I got these lyrics off of David Dodd's annotated GD lyrics site,www3.clearlight.com. The tab I worked out by ear. If anybody knows this tune better, please submit it! Deep Elem is a traditional bluegrass song played by the dead from their earliest days up to 1983. It was also played by Jerry and David Nelson in 1962.

1. Well if you go down to Deep Elem, put your money in your shoes

   Women in Deep Elem got them Deep Elem blues
chorus
   C               G                               A
   Oh sweet mama, your daddy's got them Deep Elem blues

2. Once I had a girlfriend, she meant the world to me
   She went down to Deep Elem, now she ain't what she used to be
chorus
3. When you go down to Deep Elem, have a little fun
   Have that ten dollars ready when the police man comes 
chorus
4. Once I knew a preacher, preached the bible through and through
   Went down to Deep Elem now his preaching days are through
chorus
5. When you go down to Deep Elem, put your money in your pants
   The women in Deep Elem they don't give a man a chance
chorus
6. When you go down to Deep Elem, put your money in your socks
   The redheads in Deep Elem, they'll put you on the rocks 
chorus

Peace and Jah bless! Greg
