At the east end of town at the foot of a hill
There’s a chimney so tall that says “Aragon Mill”

But there’s no smoke at all comin’ out of its stack
For the mill has pulled out and it’s never comin’ back.

Chorus:  And the only tune I hear is the sound of the wind
As she blows through the town, weave and spin, weave and spin.

There’s no children at all in the narrow, empty streets
The looms have all gone, it’s so quiet I can’t sleep

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’m too old to change but I’m too young to die
Tell me where will I go now, my family and I?

There’s no use anymore for these cotton mills it seems,
But the sound of the loom, it still haunts my dream

Chorus:  And the only tune I hear is the sound of the wind
As it blows through the town, weave and spin, weave and spin.

Weave and spin.
Weave and spin.
Weave and spin.
Weave and spin.
