about

Percy Copley is well known as a one man band- if it's got strings, this man can play (the crap out of) it.
After playing years in the Paris scene, Percy has headed to Wales to continue playing away, but to also live by the sea- who could blame him? Now you'll catch him strumming away at festivals and camps all over the UK.
Follow Percy Copley - Ukulele for all news about concerts, master classes and workshops. And while you're at it, check out this snippet of that ol' classic Deep Elem Blues, played as (we think) it should be: 2 ukes and a bass.


Percy Copley est connu comme one-man-band. Tout ce qui a des cordes dessus, il sait (incroyablement bien) en jouer !
Après avoir tourné pendant des années sur les scènes parisiennes, Percy est parti vivre au Pays de Galles, pour y jouer, mais aussi pour se rapprocher de la mer - qui pourrait le lui reprocher ?
Maintenant, on peut le voir gratter des cordes dans tous les festivals du Royaume Uni.
Suivez sa page ou son site percy.free.fr pour tout savoir sur ses concerts, master-classes et ateliers.
Et pendant que vous êtes là, offrez-vous ce bon vieux classique de Deep Elem Blues, joué comme (on pense qu')il faut : 2 ukulélés et une basse !

lyrics

If you go down to Deep Elem
Just to have a little fun,
Have your fifteen dollars
When the policemen come.
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues;
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues.

Now I once had a sweetheart,
And she meant the world to me;
But she went down to Deep Elem;
Now she's not the one for me.
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues;
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues.

If you go down to Deep Elem,
Put your money in your shoes;
Cos the women in Deep Elem
Got them Deep Elem blues.
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues;
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues.

If you go down to Deep Elem,
Put your money in your pants;
Cos the women in Deep Elem
They don't give a man a chance.
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues;
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues.

If you go down to Deep Elem,
Put your money in your socks;
Cos the women in Deep Elem
They will always throw you rocks.
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues;
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues.

Now I once knew a preacher,
Preached the Bible through and through,
But he went down into Deep Elem,
Now his preaching days are through.
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues;
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues.

Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues;
Oh, sweet mama, daddy's got the Deep Elem Blues.
