Thanks for the kind words, Harry. I would like to, but I find my timing is well behind other master listeners, who usually catch hard to hear stuff.
Glad to help.

Hurry Down Sunshine

Key of G





Well I been to Lou’siana down to the Gulf of Mexico
Well I been to Lou’siana down to the Gulf of Mexico
Well I buy wine and women most everywhere that I go

My black woman said she loved me but I believe she told a lie
My black woman said she loved me but I believe she told a lie
When my heart get to achin' and then I sit right down and cry

It's so cold in Chicago ‘til the mockingbird can't sing
It's so cold in Chicago ‘til the mockingbird can't sing
I say hurry down sunshine see what tomorrow bring

Hi Harry,
It turns out the video you posted won't show in the U.S. but I believe this one will:



All best,

Heavy Heart Blues

I lay my cards my cards on the table
But you won’t give me a break
That’s alright mama someday you’ll poor heart will ache

Here’s another another thing mama
Well I ain’t nobody’s fool
Cause I’m a hard working man I ain’t nobody’s tool

Cause you stay you stay away all the summer
And you don’t come home in the fall
It’s too late now mama someone else is in your stall

Then I look babe I look out my window
And I see you on the street
The load your heart be carryin’ be too heavy for your feet

Hi harry,

In Hurry Down Sunshine, 1.1 & 1.2:

Well I been to Lou’siana and DOWN to the Gulf of Mexico
Well I been to Lou’siana and DOWN to the Gulf of Mexico

The phrase "down to the Gulf of Mexico" is ubiquitous in old blues, so that's what I would listen for first to rule out.

Thanks for posting that "Heavy Heart Blues", Harry. That tagline on the last verse is beautiful writing.
All best,
