Lyrics

The lonely streets, the tall dark mill
It stood a hundred years, it's standing still
It's stood the snow; it's stood the rain
And it could stand them all again
Woollen town - oh woollen town
You've been a pillar of economy
But now this mill is closing down

Many years ago, or so they say
Seven-year old children were working fifteen hours a day
And through those years of industrial strife
The looms were turning, always, day and night
But never again

The lonely streets, the tall dark mill
It stood a hundred years, it's standing still
It's stood the snow; it's stood the rain
And it could stand them all again
Woollen town - oh woollen town
You've been a pillar of economy
But now this mill is closing down

The lonely streets are dark and bare
No children playing, no one walks there
There's just the mill, standing alone
Its walls are damp and overgrown
Woollen town - oh woollen town
You've been a pillar of economy
But now this mill has closed down
