Down on Thomas Street

key of [D7]

Down on Thomas Street
Down on Thomas Street
Down on Thomas Street
That’s where they meet

I went down there just the other day
Down to Thomas Street the other day
I went down to that old
Blue Note Cafe’

Most folks there are black but the songs are all blue
Most folks there are black but the songs are all blue
Most folks are black but hey, I was there
So there’s some white folk too

Some like jazz cool, some like jazz hot
Some like the backbeat, some like the bop
Y’know, I’m no fool, I like mine cool
And I like it hot

Where?

Down on Thomas Street
Down on Thomas Street
Down on Thomas Street
That’s where they meet

They gave me a shot of Thorazine, a real fascist drug. Your neck’s going like this [she flaps her head in an ugly untogether fashion] and if youdidn’t think you were crazy before, you’ll think you’re crazy then. It’s what you call a mental straitjacket – much more liberal than a straitjacket you can see.
