Dead Presidents
Little Walter Lyrics


Them dead presidents
Them dead presidents
Well I ain't broke but I'm badly bent
Everybody loves them dead presidents
A little bit of Lincoln can't park the car
Washington he can't go too far
Jefferson is good, played the track
If you think you're gonna bring some big bitch back

Them dead presidents
Hamilton on a ten can get you straight
But Jackson on a twenty is really great
And if you're talkin' about a poor man's friend
Grant will get you out of whatever you're in
Them dead presidents

A hundred dollar Franklin is really sweet
A five hundred McKinley is the one for me
If I get a Cleveland I'm really set
A thousand dollar Cleveland is hard to get
Them dead presidents

Love this tune!

Donald Morrow

Little Walter's lowdown growl set to instrumental backing that is both classy and dangerous. This is the unruly grandfather of the O'Jays' "For The Love Of Money."

Love this song!! His chess box it always goes out of print before I see it's back. But then wahoo Dead Presidents is on my Willie Dixon Box!!!
