Junk Man Blues

Junk Man Blues

(Red Nichols / Phil Dooley)

Lew Stone & the Monseigneur Band

Anybody seen the old Junk Man
Picking up all the junk he can
Nobody knows, when he's about
If you hear him, holler and shout

Any rags, bones
Any rags, bones

He buys old clothes and hot water bags
He's out in the alley hollering, bottles and bags

Repeated by Nat Gonella
