Weave Room Blues-Dixon Brothers
Dorsey, guitar, and Paul, lap-style slide guitar

Working in a weave-room, fighting for my life
Trying to make a living for my kiddies and my wife
Some are needing clothing, some are needing shoes
But I'm getting nothing but the weave-room blues

REFRAIN: I've got the blues, I've got the blues,
I've got them awful weave-room blues
I got the blues, the weave-room blues

With your looms a-slamming, shuttles bouncing in the floor
And when you flag your fixer, you can see that he is sore
I’m trying to make a living, but I'm thinking I will lose
For I'm going crazy with them weave-room blues

REFRAIN: I've got the blues, I've got the blues
I've got them awful weave-room blues
I got the blues, the weave-room blues

The harness eyes are breaking with the doubles coming through
The devil's in your alley and he's coming after you
Our hearts are aching, let us take a little booze
For we're going crazy with them weave-room blues

REFRAIN: I've got the blues, got the blues
I've got them awful weave-room blues
I got the blues, the weave-room blues

Slam-outs, break-outs, knot-ups by the score
Cloth all rolled back and piled up in the floor
The patchers running in between they’re hanging to your shoes
I’m simply dying with them weave-room blues

REFRAIN: I've got the blues, got the blues
I've got them awful weave-room blues
I got the blues, the weave-room blues
