Ain't No More Cane

Ain't no more cane on this Brazos my boys
Cause we done ground it all to molasses

When I come down here had a number for my name
Well they chained us together and we started cutting cane

I wish you was here when the storm winds came
Left a man lying dead and we cut him off the chain

I wish you was here back in 1910
They was driving the women just like they was men

If I had a sentence like 99 and 9
Ain't no dogs on this brazos could keep me on that line

Alberta why don't you let your hair hang down
Let it hang right down till it touches the ground

Go down Old Hannah don't you rise up no more
They worked me so hard that I can't work no more


As recorded on #107 "Steel Drivin' Man"
