Moon Goin' Down Lyrics: As sung by Thomasina Winslow

I had to make some corrections so here is the best version as far as accuracy:

Ah well moon goin down babe Sun's about to shine

Well now Moon going down babe sun's about to shine

Well Johny Henry told me this mornin' I don't want you a hangin round.

Well now where were you now baby Clarksdale Mill burned down

Tell me where were you now baby Clarksdale Mill burned down

I was way down Sunflower and my face all full of frown

There's a house over yonder Painted all over green

There's a house over yonder Some of the finest young men lord that You have ever seen

Oh the smokestack is black and the billage shines like gold

Smokestack is black and the billage shines like gold

Well I ain't gonna stop walkin' till I'm in my riders door.

Lord I think I heard that helano whistle helano whistle helano whistle blow

Think I heard that a helano whistle blow I ain't gonna work here nor tarry round no more
