[Lucinda Williams (spoken intro):] We have a special guest to the ??? tonight. Oh my god, I'm just ??? myself. ??? this is one of the highlights in my whole existence. I'm gonna do an old delta blue song, this is a Lil' Son Jackson song, and it's called "Disgusted", and I have Mr. Bruce Springsteen ??? (cheers). ??? an old delta blue song for all ???, try to contain yourselves (cheers). Tell me I was a little bit ???. Alright. We just, we just, we picked him up, we picked him up on the, on the, down the alley tonight. He ???

I been looking for my old man
I can't find him nowhere
I think I'll go Chicago
Look around over there

If I can't find him, hmm
Go back on the river and sit right down
That man keep a worrying poor me
I'm gonna jump overboard and drown

My man he come sit down
He come sit down right beside me
He said would be good mama
If you just come with me

And I go with my baby
What man like a woman with a sassy child
I won't have to ask him no questions
Man, because he knows the reason why

Tell me why Bruce, come on!
[Bruce Springsteen guitar solo]

I feel so disgusted
I don't know what to do
I think I'll go uptown
Try to find me something new

Meet a man with a Cadillac
Whoa man, and plenty money too
I won't have to wake up early in the morning
'Cause I won't have nothing in the world to do

On 10 Nov 2016, a night off between The Seeger Sessions Tour shows in Birmingham and London, Bruce Springsteen, along with several members of The Seeger Sessions Tour band, made a surprise guest appearance at a Lucinda Williams show in London. Toward the end of the main set, Williams announced a special guest. Springsteen joined her and her three-piece band, strapping on one of guitarist Doug Pettibone's extra guitars, and orange/red Gibson, and took a spot behind bass player Paul Bryan. He played rhythm guitar and some solos on two songs, DISGUSTED and JOY.
