-title:Church Street Blues-/title
Norman Blake, adpt. Tony Rice


Well I've been hangin' out of town, lord
In that low down rain
Watchin' good time Charlie, friends
Is drivin' me insane
Up on shady Charlotte Street, lord
The green lights look red
I Wish I's back home on the farm, lord
In my feather bed

And I got myself a rockin' chair
To see if I can lose
These thin dime hard time
Hell on the Church Street blues

I found myself a picker friend
And I read yesterday's news
I folded up page twenty-one
And I stuck it in my shoes
I gave me a nickle to the poor
My good turn for the day
I folded up my old bill fold
And threw it far away

And I got myself a rockin' chair
To see if I can lose
These thin dime hard time
Hell on the Church Street blues

And I wish I had some guitar strings
Old Black Diamond brand
I'd string up this old Martin box
And go and join some band
But I guess I'll gonna stay right here
And pick and sing a while
Try to make me a little change
And give you folks a smile

And got myself a rockin' chair
To see if I can lose
These thin dime hard time
Hell on the Church Street blues

Tony Rice speelt soms in het begin van een regel
van het couplet na het akkoord een akkoord.
Het lijkt alsof hij dat onbewust doet,
maar dat zal wel niet.
