House of David Blues (Arthur Smith) Gee, but ain't it grand, can't you hear that band Play the House of David blues. All the folks in town are gatherin' round To see the funny things they do When ham was selling for a dollar a pound I ate so many rabbits, made me jump all around Gee, but ain't it grand, can't you hear that band Play the House of David blues. (Second verse is same except these two lines replace "ham & rabbits" lines Dominecker rooster and a bow-legged hen They go together, but they ain't no kin" Copyright Arthur Smith note:I have it on the album "Blizard Train" by Ralph Blizard and the New Southern Ramblers.
