Lyr Req: The Spinning Mills of Home (Si Kahn)

DigiTrad:
ARAGON MILL
BLEEDING HEARTS
CROSSING THE BORDER
GO TO WORK ON MONDAY
GONE, GONNA RISE AGAIN
GOVERNMENT ON HORSEBACK
IT'S NOT JUST WHAT YOU'RE BORN WITH
IT'S THE SAME THE WHOLE WORLD OVER 4
MEMORIAL
PASS THE MUSIC ON
TRUCK DRIVING WOMAN
WILD ROSE OF THE MOUNTAIN

On another thread, Bruce O. posted the following:
Another Si Kahn song of mills, "The Spinning Mills of Home", is sung by Art Thieme on on Folk Legacy C-105. He just contributed a western US version of "Barbara Allen" on another thread.
Sounds intriguing, but the lyrics aren't in the database. Anybody have them? Bruce? Art?

I have C-105. Of course the lyric sheet is not in the album, which means its in a pile of other lyrics. I'll look for it.

I only had to look in 2 places to find it. Either my inventory system is improving or I was incredibly lucky

THE SPINNING MILLS OF HOME
Si Kahn

Early Monday morning,
I keep thinking that I'm late for work.
Why didn't someone wake me?
Guess the mills are down again.
For years I've been trying
To raise my kids on card-room wages;
It's time to hit the road
And try my luck up North again.

CHORUS: On the highway headed south,
On the highway headed north, Just back and forth -
Sometimes I feel like a rolling stone.
From the rolling mills of Gary
To the rolling hills
And the spinning mills of home.

All along the river
Railroad tracks turn red and rusty,
Cotton fields are dry and dusty -
You can taste it in your mouth.
I've heard people say
How they've got one foot in the grave;
I've got one in Indiana
And the other one's in the south.

Chorus

I wish someone would write it down -
That way someone who knows the work
Can gauge the labor, have it bought and sold
Like cotton, by the pound.
It's just too hard to choose between
A job back home for lousy pay
And makin' real good wages
In some northern factory town.

Chorus

Folks, I think I got some of the lyrics wrong on my recording. That's how I heard it on Si's record. Should've checked it out before I recorded it. Sorry. Art
