Twenty Miles from Marietta Lyrics

 

Twenty Miles from Marietta Song Lyrics


DORSEY:
There is a farmhouse in Marietta
Kinda bettered and forlorn
And in that farmhouse, fourteen years ago
A girl named Mary was born
And she would dance in fields of cotton
There was a tree where she could play
But when her daddy died two years ago
Mary and her momma moved away
It's only twenty miles from Marietta
To a fact'ry in the center of this town
And twenty miles was all it took
To strike that sweet girl down
People of Atlanta fought for freedom to their graves
But now their ciry is a fact'ry and their children are it's slaves
People of Atlanta swing their city gate's wide
And look at what you've wrought
