 Key:  G

Intro:  G  D  C   
 
 
Verse 1: 
 
G 
This was a town took care of it's own 
 
D 
That's what me and my children have known 
 
C 
I worked the mill the way my parents did 
 
G 
I remember this town when I was a kid 
 
Bm  
Sitting through the movies twice 
 
C 
Open windows late at night 
 
G 
Slipping out in the summer heat 
 
D 
To meet John Miller in the middle of the street 


C 
They laid a highway a few years back
G 
Next town over by the railroad track 
D 
Some nights, I'm glad it passed us by 
C                                                                 G  D C 
Some nights, I sit and watch my hometown die
 
 
 
Verse 2: 
 
G 
I'm fifty-five and when the mill burned down 
 
D 
I wasn't much past a pretty young gal 
 
C 
Boss lit a match in the oily night 
 
G 
Cops never had enough to set it right 
 
             Bm  
So while the company traded with our lives 
 
        C 
We were busy watching that slow moon rise 
 
G 
Dancing on the high grass ridge 
 
D 
Making love down by the Cedar County Bridge 
 
 
 
Repeat Chorus 
 
 
Instrumental:  G  D  C    G  D  C-  
 
 
Verse 3: 
 
G 
They never came to tear that old place down 
 
D 
They roped it off, but you can walk around 
 
C 
See the rust on the painted doors 
 
G 
Watch the rain fall through the burned out floors 
 
Bm  
This was a town took care of it's own 
 
C 
This was a town doing fine all alone 
 
G 
The mill got out a quarter to five 
 
         D 
You could eat supper with any family you liked 
 
 
 
Repeat Chorus 
 
 
Outro:  G  D  C    G  D  C    G
