Rolfyboy6 Lyr Req: One Dime Blues (Blind Lemon Jefferson) (14) RE: one dime blues 16 Apr 02

One Dime Blues is found in many versions and under several different titles. Blind Lemon Jefferson did it on record about 1928 as noted in the DT Mirror. There are many other versions. It was mentioned as among the oldest blues by many of the folklorists' informants. Traditionally it includes a verse about "I walked all the way to East St. Louis and I didn't have but one thin dime." Mance Lipscomb did this song too.

Here's a tab of Mance's "One Thin Dime" One Thin Dime

And a soundclip Texas Songster
