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

Charka (Spinning Wheel) – India: Traveling Artists of the Desert

Take to spinning to find peace of mind. The music of the wheel will be as balm to our soul. I believe that the yarn we spin is capable of mending the broken warp and woof of our life. The charkha (spinning wheel) is the symbol for nonviolence on which all life, if it is to be real life, must be based.”

Mahatma Gandhi

Harijan, April 27, 1947, p. 122

Cotton fields: blmusic8

Cotton Fields

When I was a little bitty baby
My mama done rock me in the cradle
In them old cotton fields back home
It was back in louisiana
Just about a mile from texarkana
In them old cotton fields back home

Let me tell you now well got me in a fix
I caught a nail in my tire doing lickitey splits
I had to walk a long long way to town
Came upon a nice old man well he had a hat on
Wait a minute mister can you give me some directions
I gonna want to be right off for home

Don’t care if them cotton balls get rotten
When I got you baby, who needs cotton
In them old cotton fields back home
Brother only one thing more that’s gonna warm you
A summer’s day out in california
It’s gonna be those cotton fields back home

It was back in louisiana
Just about a mile from texarkana
Give me them cotton fields
(it was back in louisiana)
Let me hear it for the cotton fields
(just about a mile from texarkana)
You know that there’s just no place like home

Well boy it sure feels good to breathe the air back home
You shoulda seen their faces when they seen how I grown
In them old cotton fields back home

Oran Sniomh: blmusic7

Oran Sniomh (Spinning Song)
Mary Jane Lamond

Spinning songs (used to accompany the spinning of wool) are no longer commonly sung. As the industrial age encroached on Cape Breton, this tradition along with many others retreated. This song is based on the singing of the late Lachlann Dhòmhnaill Nìll (Lauchie Dan N. MacLellan) of Broad Cove, Inverness County.

Orain Ghaidhlig (Gaelic Songs of Cape Breton) – Mary Jane Lamond

Oran Snìomh (Spinning Song)

‘S iomadh caileag bhòidheach laghach
A bhios ‘na suidh’ aig cuibhlidh,
A’ snìomh nan rolag ‘s seinn nan luinneag
Bidh gach currac binn ann,
A’ snàithlean bòidheach ruith ro’ meòirean
Cothrom, còmhnard, sìnte,
A falt ‘na dhual bhos cionn a cluais
‘Ga chumail suas le cìr ann.

A Nic Theàrlaich, air do shlàinte
Bidh sinn càirdeil daonnan,
Bidh thusa ‘fàs, bidh mise ‘cnàmh,
‘S mo cheann cho bàn ri faoileig
Bu mhór leam an toileach a thug siod dhomhs’,
A laighe blàth ri d’thaobhsa,
Nuair thig an geamhradh, bídh tu sàs
Aig nigheann bhàn Nic Mhaoilein.

Nuair thig an geamhradh, ‘s àm nam bainnsean
Gheobh sinn dram’ dhe ‘n Tòiseach
‘S bidh Nollaig chridheil aig cloinn nighean
‘S aig na gillean òga
Bidh mnathan òg a’ ruith ‘s a’ leum,
‘S cuid dhiubh ‘g éigheachd òran
Bidh srannd aig bodaich ann am fodar
‘S sogan orr’ a’ còmhradh.

Mary Jane Lamond

English translation:
1. Many a lovely, pleasant young woman will sit at the spinning wheel, plying the rolls and crooning melodies. All the peaked (?) mutches will be present. Lovely yarn coursing through her fingers, finished, smooth and stretched; her hair arranged in a plait held by a comb above her ear.

2. A drink to your health, oh daughter of Charles. We shall always be cordial. You will increase and I shall wither, my head white as a gull’s. It gave me great pleasure to lay warm by your side. When winter comes you will be working for MacMillan’s fair haired daughter.

3. When winter comes and the season for weddings, we’ll get a dram of spirits. The girls and young boys will enjoy a merry Christmas. Young women will bustle about, some of them calling out songs. Old men sitting in the straw will drone contentedly in conversation.

Old Spinning Wheel: blmusic5

The Old Spinning Wheel

Covered with dust and forgotten
Like the face upon the wall
There’s one souvenir of the days gone by
I treasure most of all.

Turn back the years of my childhood
As you turn, old spinning wheel
Just show me a lane with a barefoot by
As shadows softly steal.

CHORUS
cho: There’s an old spinning wheel in the parlor
spinning dreams of the long, long ago
Spinning dreams of an old fashioned garden
And a maid with her old fashioned beau

Sometimes it seems that I can hear her in the twilight
At the organ softly singing “old Black Joe”
There’s an old spinning wheel in the parlor
Spinning dreams of the long, long ago.
