Thread Name: Origins: Factory Girl
Subject: RE: factory girl
The song known as "The Factory Girl" and quoted by John Moulden (26Feb01) and Guest (18Jul04) is a Northern Island traditional song and generally sung freeform and unaccompanied (well, I certainly do it that way!! *BG*), and not to be confused with the other doffing-rhythm songs mentioned.

Peggy Seeger sang a very rhythmic "Lowell Factory Girl" number, from memory ...
