Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Tomorrow's Already Lost: Hazel Dickens
Guest, you must have a different version from Hazel's original recording. There are numerous minor variations. Anyhow, in respect of the stanza you are interested in, I hear the following from her 'Hard Hitting Songs ...' LP (Rounder 0126):

Her fear she hides within her eyes, the torment in her soul
The loved ones who've forgotten her don't need her no more
The demons from some hellish world speak to her so low
Bid her come into their world, be lost forever more

There could be 'will' between 'world' and 'speak' in the third line.

I hope this is of use to you.
