Lyrics

1. 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 eye
To buy a CocaCola and a Eskimo Pie.

I got the blues, I got the blues,
I got the Winnsb'ro cotton Mill blues.
Lordy, Lordy, spoolin's hard,
You know and I know,
I don't have to tell:
To work for Tom Watson means to work like hell.
I got the blues, I got the blues,
I got the Winnsb'ro cotton mill blues.

2. 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 keep on spoolin' in the promised land.

3. When I die, don't bury me deep,
Bury me down on 600 Street,
Place a bobbin in each hand,
So I can doff in the promised land.
