Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues

trad. / Pete Seeger: American Industrial Ballads (1956)

C
Old man Sargent sitting at the desk,
D7 G7
The damned old fool won't give us no rest.
Dm
He'd take the nickels off a dead man's eyes,
G7
To buy a Coca-cola and a Eskimo Pie.
C
I got the blues, I got the blues,
C7
I got the Winnsboro Cotton Mill blues,
F Fm
Lordy, lordy, spoolin's hard,
C
You know and I know, I don't have to tell:
Am D7 G7
You work for Tom Watson, got to work like hell.
C
I got the blues, I got the blues,
A7 D7 G7 C
I got the Winnsboro Cotton Mill blues,
 
When I die, don't you bury me at all, 
Hang me up on the spoolroom 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, 
Lordy, lordy, spoolin's hard, 
You know and I know, I don't have to tell: 
You work for Tom Watson, got to work like hell. 
I got the blues, I got the blues, 
I got the Winnsboro Cotton Mill blues,
