    Lyrics

    well I used to wake the mornin
    befor the rooster crowed
    searchin for soda bottles to get myself some dough
    brought 'em down to the corner
    down to the country store
    cash 'em in and give my money to a man named Curtis Lowe
    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 dobro used to play across his knee
    I'd give old Curt my money he play all day for me

    (chours)
    play me a song Curtis Lowe, Curtis Lowe
    well I got your drinkin' money tune up your dobro
    people said he was useless them people all were fools
    'cause Curtis Lowe was the finest picker to ever play the blues

    well he looked to be 60, maybe I was 10
    momma used to whoop me
    but I'd go see him again
    I'd clap my hands, stomp my feet tryin to stay in time
    well he'd play me a song or two then take another drink of wine

    (chours)
    play me a song Curtis Lowe, Curtis Lowe
    well I got your drinkin money tune up your dobro
    people said he was useless but them people all were fools
    'cause Curtis Lowe was the finest picker to ever play the blues

    on the day old Curtis died nobody came to pray
    old preacher said some words
    and they chucked him in the clay
    well he lived a lifetime playin' the black man's blues
    and on the day he lost his life that's all he had to lose

    (chours)
    play me a song Curtis Lowe, yeah Curtis Lowe
    I wish that you was here so everyone would know
    people said you was useless but them people all were fools
    cuz Curtis your the finest picker to ever play the blues
