Snooks Eaglin – Death Valley Blues Lyrics

I went down to Death Valley
Nothing but tombstones and dry bone
I went down to Death Valley
Nothing but tombstones and dry bone
I’m gonna build me a [?]
Lord when I’m dead and gone

Tell all you women
Please come dressed in red
Please tell all you women
Please come dressed in red
I want you to come down 61 highway
That way the poor boy he fell dead

Put on your brown leather slippers
Put on your morning gown
Put on your brown leather slippers

Put on your morning gown
I want you to bury poor [?]
Down to his burial ground

Lower me mama
Low down in the sand
Lower me mama
Way down in the sand
Well I’m bowing out 61 highway
Lord when I’m dead and gone

Put on your brown leather slippers
Put on your morning gown
Put on your brown leather slippers
Put on your morning gown
I’m gonna bury poor [?]
Down to his burial ground
