Old Stuff Friday - The Soul Corner "Grits Ain't Groceries"

We're going Deep South this week. From the Mississippi Delta, the great Little Milton with his late '60s hit "Grits Ain't Groceries". The opening stanza of these lyrics is an all time classic. You are hooked from the get go.

The original version by Little Willie John from 1955 was called "All Around the World" and it's a true find:

Many know the title line "grits ain't groceries" from the George Jones country hit "If I Don't Love You". While I love that song too, this here is the soul corner and George Jones ain't stepping on. But you should look that one up too.
