James Cotton – Down Home Blues lyrics

She said the party's jumpin',
Everybody's havin' a good time,
You know what's going through my mind
Do you mind if I get comfortable,
And kick off both of these shoes?
While you're fixin' me a drink,
Play me some o' them down home blues

You see I don't get on the town,
I'm not the kind of person
Who'll be hanging around
All week long. I been keepin' my cool
But tonight I'm gonna let my hair down,
And party on them down home blues

Down home blues, down home blues,
All she wanted to hear were those down home blues
All night long, every other record or two,
Take off those fast records,
And play me some o' them down home blues

You know my old man gonna want to fight,
Because of the hour I'll be getting in tonight,
But I don't care, tonight I'm gonna do as I choose
Tonight I'm gonna let my hair down,
And party off these down home blues,

Down home blues...
