Malcolm Holcombe - Papermill Man lyrics

Bumper to bumper goin' west in the rain Slowin' down when the bottom fell out You can smell that money goin' round and round Dirty smoke blowin' up in the air Dirty smoke blowin' up in the air There was a one room shack and a one room school Bad new in the pigeon river Sawmill sawdust stuck in your lungs And your head cant hear it thunder No your head cant hear it thunder Do you live to eat Do you eat to live For a dollar a day on the river Damn vanderbilt's hold the keys to the city Eat your supper son and forget it Speakin' in tongues strung out on the gospel Somethin' i know nuthin' about He knew ev'ry word to the great speckled bird Mister 40 year papermill man He was a fourty year papermill man Third shift sunrise mouths to feed Puttin' food on the table amen Blood's thicker than water when ya give a damn Mister 40 year papermill man He was a forty year papermill man Do you live to eat Do you eat to live For a dollar a day on the river Damn vanderbilt's hold the keys to the city Eat your supper son and forget it
