Jim Steam Killed Lula (F. Mcdowell)
Mississippi Fred Mcdowell
Recorded: March 1968 Los Angeles, ca.
Producer: Pete Welding
Album: Levee Camp Blues, Testament tcd6007

Old Jim killed Lula
On a Friday night
Old Jim killed Lula
On a Friday
On a Friday night, Lord

Old Jim got ninety
Steam got ninety-nine
Old Jim got ninety
Steam got ninety
Steam got ninety-nine
Lord, Lord

Ten thousand people
At one buryin' ground
Ten thousand people
At one buryin'
At one buryin' ground
Lord, Lord

Just to see undertaker
Let po' Lula down
Just to see the undertaker
Ooh Lordy, old Lula
Take old Lula down

Well, the church bell ringin'
Hease went drivin' slow
Well, the church bell ringin'
Well, went drivin'
Hearse went drivin' slow
Lord, Lord

I hate so bad, Lord
Keep old Lula all gone
I hates her bad ass
Sleep on Lula
Sleep on Lu - la.
