Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Down by the vinegar works
Here's part of an e-mail I got this evening:
I'm writing because you might be able to help me find the lyrics to a song my father used to sing. He died in 1969 and spent most of his life in the Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois area.
The only part of the song I can remember is, "stay away from those joiks by the winegar woiks...go home, go on...go home".
I've been looking off and on for years, with no luck and tonight I happened across something on the Mudcat forum that I thought would be the jackpot...but it was only close....something like "under the viaduct down by the winegar woiks".
It's similar to the song Jim posted, but not the same. Any ideas?
