A demo for a feature song of the album Poke Up His Goerring by Rudolf Albrecht, Ron Grundeswald, "Lead-Belly" Casey MacMiller.

Special thanks to Wade Fulp and NG Admins for this wonderful update otherwise I'd be submitting things and getting too much exposure.

"16th Street Blues"

I woke up in a blue moon
Walking left towards the blessed right
Took a turn at the ivory crossroads
Don't worry baby, let's seek some god damned light

You were dancing on the floor of the temple
Like King Solomon in the black cold night
Checkered like your past back in Memphis
Aw baby, when you killed that detective in flight

Well now we're hiding in the breast of the Master
thing heat up to 33 degrees
Thank Hiram Abiff as we light up our spliff
High like death in the colonies

Chorus:
Oh lord oh God is there no help
for the blessed widows son?
Got himself entangled with a woman
Who queened herself to Babylon

Get your base straight
and your mortar together
because you're building up a barricade
The Devil can wait
though you took his mate
The hammer and sickle are your bridesmaids

We split town out in a red tide
Police sirens on the rise
I split my 90 down the middle
I know your heart stopped a little
When I pulled out my .45

But the brothers in blue watched my feet real descreet
and started singing another tune
When they rushed off the scene, babe, you see what I mean
I no longer had the 16th street blues

(and we cried out)

Chorus:
Oh lord oh God is there no help
for the blessed widows son?
Got himself entangled with a woman
Who queened herself to Babylon

Get your base straight
and your mortar together
because you're building up a barricade
The Devil can wait
though you took his mate
The hammer and sickle will keep you straight
