Democrat Man

soundclip


by John Lee Hooker
recording of February 1960

from That's My Story (Original Blues Classics 538), copyright notice

Democrat put us on our feet, these crazy women they vote them out
Democrat put us on our feet, these crazy women they voted them out
I don't think they make the same mistake, they won't make the same mistake no more
They told them, "Ah, send your sons home",
they did just that, they send them home to stay without a job
They won't make that same mistake no more

Democrat put us on our feet, these crazy women they vote them out
I ain't goin' down, I ain't goin' down, no I ain't, I ain't goin' down to the welfare store,
It won't be long, 'fore the democrats be back in again,
I know the girls, I know the girls, I know the girls
You girls ain't gon' make that same mistake again no more, I know you ain't,
the men vote them in and the women , the women vote them out

I ain't got no shoes, no shoes
(spoken: But I ain't goin' to that welfare store.
You know why?
It won't be long 'fore election time,
democrats be in)

I know I get shoes, I get clothes, when the democrats get back in again
Vote them, they vote them in, I'm a democrat man, I'm a democrat man
Please, please don't be no fool no more
Hmm, hmm I ain't goin' down to that welfare store
It won't be long, whoa yeah
I'm a democrat , I'm a democrat man
And I'll be until the day I die
