Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues – Lead Belly’s Last Sessions

Lyrics: Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues

Ol’ man seargent sittin’ at the desk
The damn ol’ fool won’t give us no rest
He’d take the nickels off a dead man’s eyes
To buy a Coca-Cola an’ a eskimo pie

I got the blues, I got the blues
I got the Winnsboro cotton mill blues
Oh Lordy Lordy spoolin’s hard
You know and I know, we don’t have to tell
You work for Tom Watson gotta work like hell
I got the blues, I got the blues
I got the Winnsboro cotton mill blues

When I die don’t you bury me at all
Hang me up on the schoolroom wall
Place a bobbin in my hand
So I can keep on a-workin’ in the Promised Land

I got the blues, I got the blues
I got the Winnsboro cotton mill blues
Oh Lordy Lordy spoolin’s hard
You know and I know, we don’t have to tell
You work for Tom Watson gotta work like hell
I got the blues, I got the blues
I got the Winnsboro cotton mill blues
