Her house on the corner of Cedar and Elm
Still stands in our town
But it's been empty since she moved away
The day that the saw mill closed down

We'd sit on her porch almost every night
I remember how happy we were
We'd grow up and marry
I'd work at the mill to make a living for her

Her father worked at the mill
Like most of the others in town
I lost my girl when he lost his job
The day that the saw mill closed down

She moved from the corner of Cedar and Elm
And I never saw her again
But I can still hear her mother's soft voice
Saying, Honey it's time to come in

No longer do mill hands live here
The giant saws don't make a sound
No longer does my love live here
Not since the saw mill closed down

She left when the saw mill closed down
