Weave Room Blues - Dorsey Dixon -lyrics
« on: January 02, 2012, 09:46:59 PM »
Here's what I've got. Pretty sure of all of this BUT cannot decipher the third line in the last verse.  Any suggestions much appreciated!  Here is "Weave Room Blues":

 

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I've got the blues, got the blues,
    I've got them awful weave-room blues;
    I got the blues, the weave-room blues.
