lyrics

Lord the greatest bluesman that ever lived, tell me please do. The greatest bluesman that lived, tell me please do.
Big Bill Broonzy on my mind, he should be on yours too.
You can do all those things, that you want to do. You do all those things, that you want to do.
Come sit down right here, play these Big Bill Blues.
Well you got some no good hustler, standin’ by your side. Some no good hustler, standing by your side.
Why don’t you drop that hustler off and let old Cotton ride.
Well you know some people don’t like me, they want to put me down. Some people don’t like me, they want to put me down.
Come on now you’ll need CC around.
Now some people get lucky, some have no luck at all. Some people get lucky, some have no luck at all.
I got enough to go around girl and, that ain’t all.
You can do the things, that you want to do. Do all those things, that you want to do.
Come baby just sit down right and hear these Big Bill Blues.
