Thread Name: Origins: Factory Girl
Subject: RE: factory girl
The Rita Connolly version goes as follows: "Well I ain't gonna work in the factory
And greasy-up my clothes.
I ain't gonna work in the factory
And splinters in my toes.
Pity me my darlin'
Pity me I say.
Pity me my darlin'
And carry my blues away."
I wonder if the version she sings is Lancashire or Yorkshire based?
