Mill Towns lyrics - Del Mccoury Band

Click to play this song!
Heard a voice call down

From the lonesome north

Singin’ songs of the work and worth

Hard edged stories from

The hard rock towns

I can picture Saturday night

Tires squealin’ from the main street lights

Hear the crackin’ of the cables

On the cage as it’s lowered down

Hard edged stories from

The streets of the mining town


Don’t follow me in boys

Don’t follow me in boys

Don’t follow me in boys

Don’t follow me down

I was raised by the seaway side

Staring out a the river wide

Rode my bike up the bridge

Looked back at the paper mill

Through the windows I’d try and see

What the future held for the likes of me

I can hear the shift change siren still

In the seaway city by the stacks

Of the paper mill


And the towns that rose with the mines and mills

Watch the future pass

Like they’re standin’ still

And the kids all leave

Like light when the sun goes down

When you go back now

And you walk the streets

There’s parking lots

Where the buildings used to be

Night still falls

But it doesn’t make a sound

Long shadows fall

On the streets of the cold mill towns

Chorus (x2)
