Oh, My Liver and My Lungs

Oh, my liver and my lungs, my lights and my legs,
They're paining me, they're paining me;
My heart is sad, my head is bad
And I think I'm going crazy.

Crushed by the days of endless toil
And sleepless nights of woe,
There is naught but anguish ev'rywhere _
As on through life we go.

From Our Singing Country, Lomax. Collected from Mrs. Frost
     Woodhull, TX 1936 who heard it from her father who said it
     was sung by Pennsylvania miners.
