Levee Camp Blues Lyrics by Washboard Sam

 

Levee Camp Blues by Washboard Sam


(Instrumental intro)
'Boy, let's wind some'
Yes, I worked in a levee camp
Just about a month ago
Says, I worked in a levee camp
Just about a month ago
Says, I wired so many wagons
It made my po' hands so'
We slept just like dogs
Eat beans both night and day
We slept just like dogs
Eat beans both night and day
Well, I never did know
Just when we due our pay
They had two shifts on days
And the same two shifts at night
They had two shifts on days
And the same two shifts at night
But if a man wired wagons
He can't feed his baby, right
'Yeah boy, ya windin, now'
(instrumental & guitar)
'Oh, wind it'
Electric lights gone out
Catapillar's boggin' down
Electric lights gone out
Catapillar's boggin' down
I'm gonna keep on windin'
'Cause I'm the best ol' winder in town.
