Jimmy Lafave – Deep South 61 Delta Highway Blues Lyrics

Posted on

Well everybody telling me they’re leaving
Tired of this town and all the deceiving
You know they’ve all got religion see visions
Everything that they do
Me I got the deep south 61 Delta highway blues

Lost my roadmap in Memphis but I know I’m headed south
I feel the Mississippi call me down to its mouth
To a town called New Orleans where they call a street a
La Rue
Cajun ladies know about these deep south 61 Delta highway
blues

And it’s this way, baby, that way any way you feel is

right
The Bayou’s on fire in the southland tonight
I’ve been everywhere, baby, but I’ve never been nowhere
with you
Shake these deep south 61 Delta highway blues

And I’m setting on the levee trying to stay high and dry
Setting on the levee watch my life passing by
Water gets much higher it will start flowing into my
boots
No way to lose these deep south 61 Delta highway blues
