Livin’ High

It’s a nice tune that Clarence Williams recorded a couple of times. As the illustration, shows it’s about spending money, and the text is funny. There are three themes musically speaking, with a verse, a chorus and a so called “patter.”

I'm livin' high sometime livin' high
Gettin' by sometime gettin' by
I had a flat and was content
Until the landlord asked for rent
Livin' high sometime livin' high
