Millworker
Words and Music by James Taylor
(c) 1979 Country Road Music

D C/D D
D A/D D G/D A/D
Now my grandfather was a sailor, he blew in off the water
D A/D G/D A/D
My father was a farmer and I, his only daughter,
D A/D G/D A/D
took up with a no-good millworking man from Massachusetts
D A/D G/D A/D D
who dies from too much whiskey and leaves me these three faces to feed
D Csus2 G6/B A7sus4

A/D D G/D A/D
Mill-work ain't easy; mill-work ain't hard
D A/D G/D A/D
Mill-work, it ain't nothing but an awful boring job
D A/D G/D A/D
I'm waiting for a day dream to take me through the morning
D A/D G/D A/D D
and put me in my coffee break where I can have a sandwich and remember

C(addD) G6/B
Then it's me and my machine for the rest of the morning
Gm/Bb A7sus4
for the rest of the afternoon
D C/D D C/D
and the rest of my life

Now my mind begins to wander to the days back on the farm
I can see my father smiling at me, swingin' on his arm
I can hear my grand-dad's stories of the storms out on Lake Erie
where vessels and cargos and fortunes and sailor's lives were lost

Yes, but it's my life has been wasted, and I have been the fool
to let this manufacture use my body for a tool.
I can ride home in the evening, staring at my hands
swearing by my sorrow that a young girl ought to stand a better chance

C(addD) G6/B
So may I work the mills just as long as I am able
Gm/Bb A7sus4 D
and never meet the man whose name is on the label
C(addD) G6/B
It be me and my machine for the rest of the morning
Gm/Bb A7sus4
for the rest of the afternoon
D C/D D C/D
and the rest of my life
