Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues

Old man Sargent sitting at the desk,
The damned old fool won't give us no rest.
He'd take the nickels off a dead man's eyes,
To buy a Coca-cola and a Pomo Pie.

cho: I've got the blues,
     I've got the blues,
     I've got the Winnsboro Cotton Mill blues,
     Lordy, lordy, spoolin's hard,
     You know and I know, I don't have to tell:
     Work for Tom Watson, got to work like hell.
     I've got the blues,
     I've got the blues,
     I've got the Winnsboro Cotton Mill blues,
      ( Repeat after each verse)

When I die, don't bury me at all,
Just hang me up on the spoolroom wall.
Place a knotter in my hand,
So I can spool in the Promised Land.

When I die, don't bury me deep,
Bury me down on 600 Street,
Place a bobbin in each hand,
So I can dolph in the Promised Land,
