Last Fair Deal Gone Down
Robert Johnson Lyrics


It's the last fair deal goin' down
Last fair deal goin' down
It's the last fair deal goin' down, good Lord
On that Gulfport Island Road

Please, Ida Belle, don't cry this time
Ida Belle, don't cry this time
If you cry about a nickel, you'll die 'bout a dime
She wouldn't cry, but the money won't mind
I love the way you do
I love the way you do
I love the way you do, good Lord
On this Gulfport Island Road

My captain's so mean on me
My captain's so mean on me
My captain's so mean on me, good Lord
On this Gulfport Island Road

Take camp' 'tain he and see, camp' ain't he and see
At scal' ain't be at seen, good Lord
On that Gulfport Island Road

Ah, this last fair deal goin' down
It's the last fair deal goin' down
This' the last fair deal goin' down, good Lord
On this Gulfport Island Road

I'm workin' my way back home
I'm working my way back home
I'm workin' my way back home, good Lord
On this Gulfport Island Road

And that thing don't keep-a ringin' so soon
That thing don't keep-a ringin' so soon
And that thing don't keep-a ringin' so soon, good Lord
On that Gulf-and-Port Island Road

I dig the change from intro to verse, it's awkward, like it was totally off the cuff. So fuckin cool.

Rick JAmes

is he saying "that cap-tain, ain't been seen, that cap-tain ain't been seen" or that gal aint been seen, that gal aint been seen. one of RJ's harder lines to understand of all his songs.

Alex Kolliz
