lyrics

WASHER WOMAN BLUES

I’m laying out my dirty linen, bleachin’ it clean,
Trying to make a living keeping house and the weens,
I’ve got those Washer Woman Blues…..

My old man left me here on my own
With 14 kids and a great big loan
I’ve got those Washer Woman Blues, those Washer Woman Blues…

It’s been six months now since he left me here
Not a penny sent nor clue where he went
I’ve got those Washer Woman Blues…

As far as I know he’s dead and gone
Gotta find me another man to right his wrong
‘Cos a woman on her own bears a heavy load
As she trudges on through that lonesome road

She’s got those Washer Woman Blues,
Those Washer Woman Blues…..
