U.S. 41

 

My daddy came a marchin’
 
Over the hill at dawn
 
Had to make that wage man
 
That’s how we got along
 
My daddy’s life was workin’
 
Workin’ all day long
 
Put food on the table
 
And the children sang a song
 
Yes, the children sang a song
 
My grandad’s name was pulpwood
 
Wore a coat of green
 
Took a wife in ‘31
 
Drove the big machine
 
My daddy load the lumber
 
Put it on the truck
 
Used to see him walkin’ home on U.S. 41
 
That’s right, U.S. 41
 
 
All my life’s been workin’
 
Out the door and gone
 
Got to make that overtime
 
Keep us movin’ on
 
Need a drink of water
 
To get out of the sun
 
Burnin’ up to make that wage on U.S. 41
 
That’s right, U.S. 41
 
The boss man owns the business
 
Keeps it goin’ strong
 
Be blowin’ like a hurricane and
 
Work like nothin’s wrong
 
We got to keep on movin’
 
‘til the bell gone ring
 
Fill her up with kerosene
 
And let that lady sing
 
Whoa now, let that lady sing
 
His given name was Lucky
 
His wife’s name Annie Brown
 
Run outside the law
 
And they chased him right on down
 
Lucky faced the lawman
 
The captain drew his gun
 
They put him with a sling blade
 
On U.S. 41
 
That’s right, U.S. 41
