Deford Rides Again Chords by Old Crow Medicine Show

Track Info

 
[Intro]
G [Verse]
G DeFord was a man from

Castlewood, Tenn'
G Blowed on that harp

both night and day
G How he wailed on them reeds

'til his lips would bleed
G Played 'til the Lord knows when D Just a little baby boy

with a silver toy
D And the polio strikin'

Fire and wind
D At four foot nine,

Just one of his kind
G The greatest there ever been [Chorus]

C G Blow, blow, DeFord, blow C D Play that Pan-American G F G Oh, oh, where did he go? D G DeFord Bailey rides again [Verse]
G Arise, gals and gents,

for the show to commence
G There's a good-nature

riot on the air
G Little DeFord's on the

loose with them

Muscle Shoals Blues
G Let the Jim Crow South beware
D Like the fox chasin' game
D He was black balled and shamed D Stripped out the silver

From his hand
D Now, it's welfare lines

And a dollar shine
G Singin', "Oh, Lord,

Ain't I a man?"
[Chorus]
C G Blow, blow, DeFord, blow
C D Play that Pan-American
G F G Oh, oh, where did he go?
D G DeFord Bailey rides again [Solo]
C G C D G C G [Verse]
G Then he played his last

Note, in The Banner they wrote
G "Must have been those

Ice Water Blues"
G Now, up in Greenwood you'll

find a plot, four foot nine
G For our city's biggest shame,

They whitewashed his name
G For that kind of sin,

There ain't no excuse
[Chorus]
C G Blow, blow, DeFord, blow C D Play that Pan-American G F G Oh, oh, where did he go? G DeFord Bailey rides again C G Blow, blow, DeFord, blow C D Playin' up in glory land G Whoa, oh, where did he go? D G DeFord Bailey rides again G DeFord Bailey rides again F G DeFord Bailey rides again
