  • Lyrics
  • This early Broonzy composition is a cynical comment on the Jim Crow laws of the Deep South. Although many American blacks did have it rough at that time, this song was clearly not written from personal experience. As a young man, Broonzy traveled north to Chicago, and after paying his dues like the vast majority of time-serving musicians, he found both fame and fortune including in Europe, where he traveled extensively. >>
