Weaver's Life (Tune, Charles Davies Tillman, words Dorsey Dixon) Weaver's life is like an engine coming round a mountain steep We have our ups and downs a-plenty, and at night we cannot sleep Very often flag your fixer when his head is bending low You may think that he is loafing, but he is doing all he knows Soon we'll end this life of weaving Soon we'll reach a better shore Where we'll rest from filling batteries We will have to weave no more Very often meet a partner who would like to learn to weave And we feel it is our duty, we are bound to believe Show him all about those breakouts, for he will have them by the score When the conversation's over, he will want to weave no more Very often have a breakout that will surely make you sweat If you're feeling blue and drowsy, they will almost make you quit Very often have a headache when our looms are running bad When we've ground and snagged the lever, you can bet your life we're mad SOF
