Clearing House Blues-Clara Smith
Clara Smith, vocal, unknown accompanist

INTRO

There's a gang in town, that hangs around
With a pencil writing numbers down,
From Monday morn to Saturday dawn,
With a pad to put your numbers on,
Now folks, take my advice,
I'd rather roll the dice

Oh those clearing house blues, oh those clearing house blues
Now folks, it may sound funny, that's how I lost my money
It seems to me as if I'm all broke down
Since I've lost my change, I lost my seal-skin brown

Oh those clearing house blues, those clearing house blues
I had all kind of dreams, I planned all kinds of schemes
My clothes are in soak, my pocket's gone broke
I've got those clearing house blues, those blues
I've got the clearing house blues

Oh those clearing house blues, those clearing house blues
Now folks it may sound funny, that's how I lost my money
It seems to me as if I'm all broke down
Since I lost my change I lost my seal-skin brown

Oh, those clearing house blues, oh those clearing house blues
I've had all kind of dreams, I planned all kinds of schemes
My clothes all in soak, my pockets gone broke
I've got clearing house, oh those blues
I've got those clearing house blues
