Lyrics:


I ain't gonna work on Maggie's Farm no more

I ain't gonna work on Maggie's Farm no more

Well, I wake up in the morning, fold my hands and pray for rain

I got a head full of ideas, and its drivin' me insane

It's a shame, the way she makes me scrub the floor

I ain't gonna work on Maggie's Farm no more


I ain't gonna work for Maggie's brother no more

I ain't gonna work for Maggie's brother no more

Well, he hands you a nickel, and he hands you a dime

He asks you with a grin, are you havin' a good time

Then he fines you every time you slam the door

I ain't gonna work for Maggie's brother no more


I ain't gonna work for Maggie's pa no more

No, I ain't gonna work for Maggie's pa no more

Well, he puts his cigar out in your face for kicks

His bedroom window is made out of bricks

And the National Guard stands around his door

I ain't gonna work for Maggie's pa, no more


I ain't gonna work for Maggie's ma, no more

No, I ain't gonna work for Maggie's ma, no more

Well, she talks to all the servants about man and God and law

And everybody says, she's the brains behind pa

She's 68, but she says 54

I ain't gonna work for Maggie's ma, no more


I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more

I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more

Well, I try my best to be just like I am

But everybody wants you to be just like them

They say sing while you slave

I just get bored, no


Ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm, no more

I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm, no more

I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm, no more

I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm, no more

I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm, no more


"We’ve always treasured Bob Dylan’s Maggie’s Farm, a love rooted in our childhood introduction to it. Additionally, covering this song held special significance due to our shared Messianic Jewish faith with Bob Dylan.


The song’s lyrics strike a chord with us, resonating deeply as they likely do with others, showcasing the profound impact of strong writing. Maggie’s Farm symbolizes our commitment to asserting artistic freedom and retaining control over our musical identity. Navigating the music industry presents its challenges, making the moment of kicking that bucket in our music video all the more satisfying." - Victoria Kelley - Indigo Roots Band Lead Singer
