Blacksmith Blues - Steve Carl With The Jags

Blacksmith Blues

Steve Carl With The Jags

(Jack Holmes, Not originally issued)

Well, down in old Kentucky
Horseshoes are lucky
There's a village smithy
Standin' under the chestnut tree
Hear the hammer rockin'
See the anvil knockin'
And you oughta see him goin'
When he's hammerin' on the shoes
Well, the hot sparks a-flyin'
Fourth of July-in'
He's even got the horses cloppin'
Pop, down the avenue
They love the rhythm
The bangin' rhythm
You'll get a lot o' kicks
Out of the Blacksmith Blues

Well, down on Mainstreet
Cats are going crazy
You oughta see them go
As they bop down the avenue
They love the rhythm
The bangin' rhythm
You oughta see them go
When they do the rock 'n' roll
Well, the hot sparks a-flyin'
Fourth of July-in'
The horses is a even doin'
Bop, down the avenue
They love the rhythm
The bangin' rhythm
You'll get a lot o' kicks
Out of the Blacksmith Blues
