Millworker  Emmylou Harris

[C]My grandfather was a [G]sailor he [F]blew in off the [G]water
[C]My father was a [G]farmer and [F]I his only d[G]aughter
[C]took up with a [G]no-good millworking [F]man from Massachus[G]etts
W[C]ho dies from too much [G]whiskey and [F]leaves me these three [G]faces to [C]feed
[C]Now Mill-work ain't [G]easy  [F]mill-work ain't [G]hard
[C]Mill-work it ain't [G]nothing but an [F]awful boring [G]job
I'm [C]waiting for a [G]day dream to [F]take me through the [G]morning
And [C]put me in my [G]coffee break where [F]I can have a [G]sandwich and [C]remember
And it's [Bb]me and my machine for the [F]rest of the morning
For the [Fm]rest of the after[Gsus]noon
[G]For the rest of my [C]life[Eb]   [Bb]   [C]
[C]Now my mind begins to [G]wander to the d[F]ays back on the f[G]arm
[C]I can see my father[G] smiling at me  [F]swingin' on his [G]arm
I can hear my grand-dad's[G] stories of the s[F]torms out on Lake E[G]rie
[C]Where vessels and [G]cargos and [F]fortunes and [G]sailor's lives were [C]lost

SOLO Eb


[C]But it's my life has been [G]wasted, and [F]I have been the [G]fool
[C]To let this manuf[G]acture use my [F]body for a [G]tool
I can ride home in the [G]evening [F]staring at my [G]hands
[C]Wearing by my [G]sorrow that a young [F]girl ought to st[G]and a better ch[C]ance
So [Bb]may I work the mills just as [F]long as I am able
Aand[Fm] never meet the man [Gsus]whose name is on the [C]label
And it's [Bb]me and my machine for the [F]rest of the morning
For the [Fm]rest of the after[Gsus]noon
[G]Fnd the rest of my [C]life
