Dead Presidents

Dead Presidents
by Willie Dixon
performed by Little Walter

Them dead presidents
Them dead presidents
Well I ain't broke but I'm badly bent
Everybody loves them dead presidents

A little bit of Lincoln can't park the car
Washington he can't go too far
Jefferson is good, played the track
If you think you're gonna bring some big bitch back

Them dead presidents

Hamilton on a ten can get you straight
But Jackson on a twenty is really great
And if you're talkin about a poor man's friend
Grant will get you out of whatever you're in

Them dead presidents

[harp solo]

A hundred dollar Franklin is really sweet
A five hundred McKinley is the one for me
If I get a Cleveland I'm really set
A thousand dollar Cleveland is hard to get

Them dead presidents

[harp solo to fade]
