Levee Camp Blues

This song is by Washboard Sam and appears on the compilation album Washboard Sam Vol. 6 1941-1942 (1993).

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
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
