Cairo Blues by Lil' Son Jackson

Cairo Blues - Lil' Son Jackson,
DGDGBE tuning.

You know, I want to go to Cairo, but the water's all over town
You know, I want to go to Cairo, but the water's all over town
The polices on the corner don't allow nobody 'round

The gal I love, and she got washed away
Girl I love, she got washed away
Well now, since she been gone, you know, I got nowhere to stay

Cairo, Cairo was a place I dearly love
Cairo, Cairo was a place I dearly love
Everything so pleasant 'round me and the moon and stars above

SOLO

You know, I'm ragged and dirty, babe, I'm barefoot and hongry [sic], too
Yes, I'm raggled [sic] and dirty, baby, barefoot and hongry, too
But if I clean up, girl, can I go home with you?
