Lyrics

(1) I worked in the cotton mill all my life
I ain't got nothing but a barlow knife
It's a hard times, cotton mill girls
Hard times everywhere

Chorus:
It's a hard times, cotton mill girls
A hard times, cotton mill girls
Hard times, cotton mill girls
Hard times everywhere

(2) In 1915 we heard it said
"Move to cotton country and get ahead."
It's a hard times, cotton mill girls
Hard times everywhere

Chorus

(3) From Gilmer to Bartow is a long, long way
Down Cartecay from Ellijay
It's a hard times, cotton mill girls
Hard times everywhere

Chorus

(4) When I die don't bury me at all
Just hang me up on the spinning room wall
And pickle my bones in al-ki-hol
It's a hard times, cotton mill girls

Chorus
