[3] For Old Folks

For Old Folks

This is no place for kids.

Most folks will tell you that John’s Carpet House is for a mature crowd. And while some parents bring their younger children to pick up on lessons from their elders, the lyrics expressed in “adult” blues sets the mood for Detroit’s older folks to have a good time.
