INTRO: C# F# (x2)

#1.
    C#           F#        C#        F#
Her house on the corner of Cedar and Elm..
C#    F#            C#
still stands in our town.
C#            F#          C#         F#
But it's been empty since she moved away..
    C#           F#              C#
the day that the saw-mill closed down.
 F#            C#
(Oooo-weee-bee-doo.)

#2.
C#              F#           C#    F#
We'd sit on her porch almost every night..
    C#         F#       C#
I remember how happy we were.
C#               F#        C#          F#   
We'd grow up and marry I'd work at the mill..
   C#     F#         C#
to make a living for her.
 F#            C#
(Oooo-weee-bee-doo.)

BRIDGE:
F#  G#     C#            F#         C#
Her father worked at the mill..like most of the 
F#        C#  C#7
others in town.
  F#      G#        C#          F#       C#
I lost my girl when he lost his job..the day that 
    F#              C#
the saw-mill closed down.
F#            C#........D
(Oooo-weee-bee-doo.)

#3.
D                  G         D         G        D
She moved from the corner of Cedar and Elm..and I 
      G        D
never saw her again.
D               G        D             G
But I can still hear her mother's soft voice..saying, 
D           G            D
honey, it's time to come in.
 G             D
(Oooo-weee-bee-doo.)

#4.
   G    A      D               G         D          G     
No lon..ger do mill hands live here..the giant saws don't 
       D
make a sound.
   G     A       D            G     D             G
No long..er does my love live here..not since the saw-mill 
       D
closed down.

OUTRO:
D                 G               D
She left when the saw-mill closed down.
 G             D
(Oooo-weee-bee-doo.)(Fade.)
