Liza Jane

This song is by The Almanac Singers and appears on the EP Songs for John Doe (1941).

I got a girl in Arkansas, little Liza Jane
She sleeps in her kitchen with her feet in the hall, little Liza Jane

Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane
Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane

I'm gonna marry her if I can
She loves me 'cause I'm a union man

Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane
Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane

Heard a speech by the President
Wants to put me in a regiment

Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane
Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane

I went to the draft and stood in line
Now I'm a number Six Oh Nine

Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane
Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane

Said in Congress yesterday
"Take the right to strike away"

Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane
Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane

They say that labor camps are fine
To make the young folk toe the line

Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane
Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane

I can't marry you today
I can't afford it on my pay

Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane
Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane

Cut the pay and raise the rents
It's all for national defense

Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane
Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane

Better make the government change its plan
I aim to be a married man

Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane
Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane

Dry your tears, get out your knittin'
I don't aim to be no bundle for Britain

Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane
Oh! Won't you Oh! Eliza, little Liza Jane
