Working Girl Blues

Hazel Dickens
Language: English



Hey I got the early Monday morning working blues
I put on my ragged wore out working shoes
Well the weekend was too short but I can’t choose
When the Lord made the working girl, he made the blues

Well I'm tired of working my life way
Giving somebody else all of my pay
While they get rich on the profits that I lose
And leaving me here with the working girl blues

I le yodel lay dee Working Girl Blues!
I can't even afford a new pair of shoes
While they can live in any old penthouse they choose
And all that I’ve got is the working girl blues

My boss said a raise is due most any day
But I wonder will my hair be all turned gray
Before he turns that dollar loose and I get my dues
And lose a little bit of these working girl blues

Well Iknow there’s a lot of working girls like me
Who are overworked and underpaid you see
And we all know our pockets been picked clean‎
So the rich can have that all American dream!‎

And we’re tired of working our lives away
Giving somebody else all of our pay
While they get rich on the profits that we lose
Leaving us here with the working girl blues

I le yodel lay dee Working Girl Blues!
