Old Jim Crow Lyrics

Old Jim Crow, where you been, baby?
Down Mississippi and back again
Old Jim Crow, don't you know?
It's all over now

Old Jim Crow, what's wrong with you?
It ain't your name, it's the things you do
Old Jim Crow, don't you know?
It's all over now

Old Jim Crow, you've been around too long
Gotta work the Devil, 'til you're dead and gone
Old Jim Crow, yes, don't you know?
That it's all over now, it's all over now

Old Jim Crow, you know it's true
When you hurt my brother, you hurt me too
Old Jim Crow, don't you know?
It's all over now, yeah

Old Jim Crow, thought I had you beat
Now I see you walkin' and talkin', up and down my street
Old Jim Crow, don't you know?
It's all over now, yeah

Old Jim Crow, you've been around too long
Gotta work the Devil, 'til you're dead and gone
Old Jim Crow, don't you know?
It's all over, all over

Oh Lord, it's all over, all over
It's all over, it's all over
It's all over now
Yeah
