Dry Well Blues
by Charley Patton

Way down in Lula , hard livin' has done hit
Way down in Lula, hard livin' has done hit
Lord, your drought come an' caught us,
an' parched up all the tree
Aw, she stays over in Lula, bid that ol' town goodbye
Stays in Lula, bidding you the town goodbye
Fore I would come to know the day,
oh, the Lula well was gone dry
Lord, there're citizens around Lula,
aw, was doin' very well
Ctizens around Lula, aw, was doin' very well
Now they're in hard luck together,
'cause rain don't pour nowhere
I ain't got no money and I sure ain't got no hope
I ain't got no money and I sure ain't got no hope
...come in, furnished all the cotton and crops
Boy, they tell me the country, Lord, it'll make you cry
Lord, country, Lord, it'll make you cry
Most anybody, Lord, hasn't any water in the bayou
Lord, the Lula womens, Lord, puttin' Lula young mens down
Lula men, oh, puttin' Lula men down
Lord, you outta been there, Lord,
the womens all leavin' town
