about

Written by James Monger

lyrics

Tall was the bottle in the glove box
Long were the days for the foreman of the mill
He was twice as mean
When he drank the kerosene
And when the break whistle blew
He'd take it out on me
Long were the days for the foreman of the mill

Cold was the floor of the breakroom
Red was the face of the foreman of the mill
And when he'd has his way
I'd go back up on the crane
And bite the long blue collar of my family name
Red was the face of the foreman of the mill

Bright was the iron in the cauldron
Dark was the day for the foreman of the mill
And when I pushed him in
Lord, the devil did grin
And every car in Detroit took a piece of him
Dark was the day for the foreman of the mill
