GUEST,DrWord Lyr Req: Old Man Livin' at the Mill (Dillards) (32) RE: Lyr Req: Old Man Livin' at the Mill (Dillards) 18 May 20


Well. The Dillard’s taught me this one. Note: I haven’t read every one of the above posts, just most of them. The thread title & OP refer to that “version” and NOT to any Jolly Miller. I have not heard the vinyl in well over forty years, but I will share my memory.
“Down-sitter now, with his hair all white / Lonesome day and a lonesome night...”   
“Well said the raven as she flew, / If I had another well then I’d have two / one to cook, t’other for to sew / I’d have a ring for my beau, beau, beau ...”
and
“My old man’s in Kalamazoo; he don’t wear no yes I do / First to the left and then to the right / This old mill grinds day and night”
Cheers to the Mudcat crew, regulars and newbies. Keep on pickin’
