I'd like to tell you 'bout my home town
But it's awfully hard to explain to a stranger
It's been a year since I went down
To the place that I was born and raised, sir, oh.
I gotta make it rich I'm getting tired of digging ditches back on the farm
I got a girl I wanna marry and I know that she loves me Yes, I'm ready for work, I got my shirt sleeves rolled up around my arms
I got a chance to make it rich in a textile factory.
Well, my papa was a poor man but always did the best he could
And he whipped my behind whenever I wasn't good
There were six of us children in my family
Mmm and not a single one of us has ever learned how to read.
Well, I'm really not complaining, my parents were the best you could have
Well, I love my mama and I really respected my dad.
Well, let me tell you that every Sunday morning we would dress in our Sunday
clothes
And we would listen to a sermon from the preacher about our good Lord
Well, the preacher said: 'Child, be thankful for the food you eat'
But my tastes are getting bigger, I think I'll be traveling East.
You know I gotta make it rich, I'm getting tired of digging ditches back on the
farm
I got a girl I wanna marry and I know that she loves me Yes, I'm ready for work, I got my sleeves rolled up around my arms
I got a chance to make it rich in a textile factory.
Well, now listen here brother if you think you've got it bad
Mmm well, what do you think about the life I've had?
Well, my father said to me: 'Son, you know you've got to earn your keep'
So I've been working from sun up to sun down since I was thirteen
Well, my father said: 'Boy, be thankful got a place to sleep'
But I've been sleeping awful restless and I think I'll be moving East.
You know I gotta make it rich, I'm getting tired of digging ditches back on the
farm
I got a girl I wanna marry and I know that she loves me Yes, I'm ready for work, I got my sleeves rolled up around my arms
I got a chance to make it rich in a textile factory.
You know I gotta make it rich, I'm getting tired of digging ditches back on the
farm
I got a girl I wanna marry and I know that she loves me Yes, I'm ready for work, I got my sleeves rolled up around my arms
I got a chance to make it rich in a textile factory.
