Street Car Blues - Sleepy John Estes
Self-accompanied, with Jab Jones, piano and Yank Rachell, mandolin

Now, I know the people is on a wonder ev'ywhere
I say, I know the people is on a wonder ev'ywhere
Because they heard of Poor John, was strollin' 'round a 'lectric car

Now, catch at Century 'n' Poplar, ride it down to Summer Street
I say, I catch at Century 'n' Poplar, ride it down to Summer Street
Lord, I'm gon' ease it down in Roebust catch my baby out on a midnight creep

Lord, the reasonin' why, babe, I been so long writin' to you
I say, the reasonin' why, babe, I been so long writin' to you
Because I've been studyin' so hard, Lord, how to sing these blues

SPOKEN: Sing 'em, boy, for Mr. James

Lord, I lost my papa and my dear mama too
I say, I lost my papa and my dear mama too.
Lord, I'm gon' quit my bad way of livin' and visit the Sunday School
