lyrics

One store left in Hoxeyville
Cuz there ain't nothing here no more
30 odd houses standing empty
Since the papermill closed its doors
Who can say where the people went
I heard John Hall's working for the government
He told me it's the last damn job that's left
Since the paper mill closed its doors

Oh, there ain't nothing here no more
The paper mill closed its doors

John was foreman up in Parts & Sparks
He knew every bolt and wire
If any machine was ever broken down
He had it fixed in a half an hour
Now he's carrying a heavier load
Scraping dead deer off the side of the road
Backing breaking work for a sixty year old
But the paper mill closed its doors

Ain't nothing here no more
The papermill closed its doors

Crisis hovers cuz it's timeless
What we do is what defines us

Volunteering at the Baptist church
When the Second Harvest truck comes round
Company closings left me in the lurch
But I can't seem to leave this town
Grampa came here back in thirty-two
Goddamn I'll probly die here too
What the hell else am I supposed to do
The paper mill closed its doors

Ain't nothing here no more
The paper mill closed its doors
