Aragon Mill

Si Khan

At the east end of town at the foot of the hill
stands a chimney so tall that says Aragon mill
And there's no smoke at all coming out of the stack
for the mill has shut down and it's never coming back
And the only tune I hear is the sound of the wind
as it blows through the town weave and spin weave and spin

Now the mill has shut down, it's the only life I know
tell me where will I go, tell me where will I go
I am too old to work, but I'm too young to die
and there's no place to go for my family and I
And the only tune I hear is the sound of the wind
as it blows through the town weave and spin weave and spin

There's no children at all the narrow empty streets
now the looms have all gone, it's so quiet I can't sleep
And the only tune I hear is the sound of the wind
as it blows through the town weave and spin weave and spin
And the only tune I hear is the sound of the wind
as it blows through the town weave and spin weave and spin

At the east end of town . . .
