  • Description: From 1969 Vinyl, LP, Album "Tupelo Blues"

    Tupelo is a city in the state of Mississippi, which is best known for being the birthplace of Elvis Presley. John Lee Hooker recorded the original version of this song in 1959, which chronicles a flood in Tupelo, 20 years previously.
    Inspired by John Lee Hooker's song, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds reworked it as "Tupelo", combining imagery of the flood with memories of Elvis. It was released on the Bad Seeds 1985 album The Firstborn is Dead.

    Did you read about the flood?
    It happened long time ago, in a little country town, way back in Mississippi
    It rained and it rained, it rained both night and day
    The people got worried, they began to cry,
    "lord have mercy, where can we go now?"
    There were women and there was children, screaming and crying,
    "lord have mercy and a great disaster, who can we turn to now, but you?"
    The great flood of Tupelo, Mississippi
    It happened one evenin', one Friday evenin', a long time ago,
    It rained and it started rainin'
    The people of Tupelo, out on the farm gathering their harvest,
    A dark cloud rolled, way back in Tupelo, Mississippi, hmm, hmm

    Wasn't that a mighty time,
    Wasn't that a mighty time?
    Wasn't that a mighty time,
    A mighty time, that evenin'?
    It rained, both night and day
    The poor people that had no place to go, hmm,hmm
    A little town, called Tupelo, Mississippi
    I never forget it and I know you won't either
