Steel Mill Town

Old folks
Sittin’ on the back porch
Watchin’ the sun go down.
Black smoke
Makin’ all the flowers brown.
Honey, I don’t know where we’re goin’
But we gotta leave this Steel Mill Town. 

Old clothes
Hangin’ on the back line
Ain’t gonna wear much more.
Owe a lotta money
Down at the grocery store.
We’ll leave this Steel Mill Town,
Maybe head on down to Baltimore. 

(Chorus.) 
Steel Mill Town
Drive me to the ground,...
Cheat me, defeat me,
Always try to beat me down.
Honey, I don’t know where we’re goin’
But we gotta leave this Steel Mill Town. 

Hard times...
Ain’t nobody workin’..
Livin’ in a rundown shack.
No crime
Walkin’ down a railroad track.
Leavin’ this Steel Mill Town
An’ we ain’t never comin’ back. 

Old dog
Tied up in the backyard,
Barkin’ as we go by.
Cinders
Fallin’ from a sunset sky.
Baby, that old brown dog
Was the only one that said goodbye. 

(Chorus.) 
Steel Mill Town
Drive me to the ground,...
Cheat me, defeat me,
Always try to beat me down.
Honey, I don’t know where we’re goin’
But we gotta leave this Steel Mill Town.
