Blue Yodel #9

"Standing on the corner I didn’t mean no harm
When a big policeman grabbed me by the arm.
Now, it was down in Memphis
On the corner of Beale and Main
He said now, hey big boy
I’m gonna have to know your name.
Now, you can find my name
On the tail of my shirt
I’m a Tennessee hustler
And I don't have to work."
-Jimmy Rodgers, Sept. 11, 1931

The look on Larry's face pretty much tells the story here.
