Mill Boys  (John Lees)

 C        G           D                 Em
Sky was black, Lord, rain came pouring down
  C              G            D         Am
Number 12 bus shuffling down Shaw Road way
 C             G                   D               Em
Mules keep spinning, black-faced lifers peck the ground
 C                   G             D           Am
Sun comes up like lightning over Tandle Hills grey

Ch.
        G                       Am
We are mill boys, stuck on the hill boys
              C           F              G
Stuck in the mill boys, 'till our dying day


Ch. on  Poor Boy Blues  (Solo)

  C               G                    D                Em
Cotton mill will get you, boy, she'll take you to your grave
  C              G                D                 Am
Tell you boy to use your head, apprentice out your days
  C                                     G                                          D                                    Em
You'll end up in nothing, boy, with cotton as your trade
 C                   G             D           Am
Sun comes up like lightning over Tandle Hills grey


Ch. *2

      C            G
It's easy to see a poor boy's blues
            Am           G
When he's working every day
       C                 G
It's harder to be there in his shoes
        Am              G
He was born to be that way
