Ol' Elder Brown

found in American Negro Songs (1940) by John W. Work, recorded on Bound to Go

Ol' Elder Brown's in town,
Ol' Elder Brown's in town,
Ol' Elder Brown's in town,
With his long clothes on. 

Ol' Elder Brown tol' Griffin,
"Now don't you think I'll win? 
Gon' back to Shreveport town,
Gon' start my church again."

Ol' Elder Brown started his church
And the storm blowed it down,
Then Elder sang this song,
"I'm all out and down." 

He's on the road somewhere,
He's on the road somewhere,
A long tall brownskin man,
He's on the road somewhere.
