A jook joint song. In an earlier interview, the singers answered questions about jook joints, and defined them as "bar rooms," formerly known as "festival halls," "a name colored people give dance halls," etc. They think the term jook joint originated in sawmill camps. Jooks are described: "an outlaw place; don't nobody go there but outlaw people." The jook joint song is reported to have been heard in jook joints in Perry, Florida, and in Suwannee County, and in the Interstate Jook. The sound quality of this recording is extremely poor. It has been included online because the melody line can still be identified.
