I only know of ellum tea second hand. My Granny kept a razor strap hanging inside the closet door under the steps. Usually all she had to do was look that direction to get the desired results.

I live in that house now and the nail the strap hung on is still in the door, but times have changed and the razor strap got away from us.

(I have, rarely, whipped my kids, but only with my bare hands--I never used a weapon. They've never shot or stabbed anybody yet.)

They'll all tell you that what the world needs more of is a liberal application of "ellum tea," which referred to mothers using an elm branch for a switch.

It was first recorded around 1935 by the Shelton Brothers (aka The Lone Star Cowboys) and became something of a standard with old-time string bands, and has been recorded by the Prairie Ramblers, Doc Watson, the Maddox Brothers, the Delmore Brothers, Jimmy Revard and his Oklahoma Playboys, the Balfa Brothers, Charlie Feathers, even Jerry Lee Lewis. Personally I really like the Hank Thompson version.

A verse went
"If you go down to De bellum keep your money in your shoes[2]"
Them Debellum women 'll give you debellum blues"
--or something like that.
