lyrics

LONESOME PINE CO. – I. Meadows

I see them out there everyday
On that distant southern ridge line
Cutting pine down for their pay
And camping by the roadside
That road it leads to Cumberland
There ain’t much to see there
It’s a ten mile walk to the package store
And they walk there every weekend

We’ve all known a tree that won’t be cut
We’ve all heard a song that can’t be sung
We’ve had not-so-precious time to sit lonely
We’ve all known the lonesome pine company
With a heavy heart and a blade that shines
The saw man farms his timber
It’s hot as hell, but the nights get cold
Just two months ‘til September

I got out of Maine when I was young
So the logging wouldn’t take me
Day in day out of swinging axe
Would surely serve to break me
We’ve all known a war that can’t be won
We have seen a long day set with the sun
We’ve watched the hours roll on by, sitting lonely
We’ve all known the lonesome pine company
