Title :

The Ballad of Curtis Loew




(Allen Collins - Ronnie VanZant)

Well I used to wake the morning before the rooster crowed
Searching for soda bottles to get myself some dough
Brought 'em down to the cornerdown to the country store
Cash 'em in and give my money to a man named Curtis Loew

Old Curt was a black man with white curly hair
When he had a fifth of wine he did not have a care
He used to own an old dobroused to play it across his knee
I'd give old Curt my moneyhe'd play all day for me

(Chorus)
Play me a song Curtis LoewCurtis Loew
I got your drinking moneytune up your dobro
People said he was uselessthem people are the fools
'Cause Curtis Loew was the finest picker to ever play the blues

He looked to be sixtyand maybe I was ten
Mama used to whip me but I'd go see him again
I'd clap my handsstomp my feetstry to stay in time
He'd play me a song or two
Then take another drink of wine.

Chorus

Yes sir

On the day old Curtis diednobody came to pray
Ol' preacher said some wordsand they chunked him in the clay
But he lived a lifetime playin' the black man's blues
And on the day he lost his lifethat's all he had to lose

Play me a song Curtis LoewHey Curtis Loew
I wish that you was here so everyone would know
People said he was uselessthem people all are fools
'Cause Curtis you're the finest picker to ever play the blues
