1.Day The Saw Mill Closed Down (修改)

作詞:Jerry Foster, Bill Rice

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




2.Bird Named Yesterday (修改)

作詞:Jack H Clement

I had a bird he flew away
And I guess he's gone to stay
But I see him winging on his way
My flyaway bird named Yesterday

He's over the place of my birth
He's circling a spot that I know
He's hangin' around the saw mill town
Where the gentle summer breeze blow

I had a bird he flew away
And I guess he's gone to stay
But I see him winging on his way
My flyaway bird named Yesterday

He's riding on a train
He's down at the old swimmin' hole
He'll fly till he finds
That old gang of mine

Then he'll search for a tree
A big tall oak tree
Then he'll look from his perch
At the old country church

I had a bird he flew away
And I guess he's gone to stay
But I see him winging on his way
My flyaway bird named Yesterday




3.Air Conditioner Song (修改)

作詞:Jack H Clement

Oh, the sound of the thing is not a ring
It's more like a pleasant purr
And the only sound I hear at night
Is the sound of my purring air-conditioner

The air is pure and dehumidified
Thermostatically controlled
Now I have no desire to perspire
And that's how progress goes

But the sound of their singing thrilled me
As distantly but clearly it rang
Though I never saw their faces
And never knew their names

And the gentle breeze brought sweet dreams
Of sweethearts that I never saw
Who sang, 'You Are My Sunshine'
In Newport, Arkansas

4.They Covered Up The Old Swimming Hole (修改)

作詞:Jack Clement

Boring through the mountains bypassing the towns
Interstate 90 is a sight to behold
But that monument to progress and engineering skill
Has covered up the old swimming hole

Thirty feet straight up from where the old hole stood
They sell twenty kinds of icecream and the food is good
But it never can compare with the food for the soul
You could get for a dip in the old swimming hole

Oh, the old swimming hole her cool waters ran deep
Felt good to a boy, with mud on his feet
And I'm wishing these days I could strip to my soul
And go for a dip in the old swimming hole

A symbol of our great and affluent society
Interstate 90 fulfillment of our goals
But that masterpiece of human ingenuity
Has covered up the old swimming hole

Gone the wooden schoolhouse, the old country store
The winding dirt road that's winding no more
And the old swimming hole hears the sound of speeding wheels
Entombed beneath a blanket of concrete and steel

Oh, the old swimming hole her cool waters ran deep
Felt good to a boy, with mud on his feet
And I'm wishing these days I could strip to my soul
And go for a dip in the old swimming hole

5.Somebody Bought My Old Hometown (修改)

I used to like to listen to the tales of the old men
Who sat around the old park square
But the piddlers and the whittlers and the checker boards are gone
There's a brand new office building there

And the street known as Maple is much wider now
And there are no maples to be found
Since Consolidated Whozit Subdivision of Universal-What-You-Call-It Bought my old hometown

There used to be good fishin' down along the shady mill stream
You'd see 'em as they jumped and played
But the blue gill and the croppie and the old mill made way
For Chemical Division Section A

They pulled up the flowers planted by the Ladies' Club
And took the city founder statue down
Since Consolidated Whozit Subdivision of Universal-What-You-Call-It Bought my old hometown

Yeah, the picture show has had it where I used to spend my Saturdays
With Jean and Roy and Pop along
Now the Brotherhood of Gismo Fixers Local 102
Is making it their temporary home

They cut down the maples along Maple Street
And of course the pool hall came down
Since Consolidated Whozit Subdivision of Universal-What-You-Call-It Bought my old hometown




6.Ode To The Little Brown Shack Out Back (修改)

They passed an ordinance in the town they said we'd have to tear it down
That little old shack out back so dear to me
Though the health department said its day was over and dead
It will stand forever in my memory
Don't let them tear that little brown building down
Don't let them tear that precious building down
Don't let them tear that dear old building down
There's not another like it in the country or the town

It was not so long ago that I went tripping through the snow
Out to that house behind my old hound dog
Where I would sit me down to rest like a snowbird on his nest
And I'd read that Sears and Roebuck catalog
Oh I would hum a happy tune peeping through the quarter moon
As my daddy's kin had done so much before

It was in that quiet spot daily cares could be forgot
And it gave the same relief to rich and poor
Don't let them tear...

Now it was not a castle fair but I could dream of future there
Build my castle to the yellow jackets drone
I could orbit round the sun fight with General Washington
Or be a king upon a golden throne
It wasn't fancy built at all we had newspapers on the wall
It was air-conditioned in the wintertime
Oh it was just an humble hut but its door was never shut
And a man could get inside without a dime
Don't let them tear...
