Silver Thread City

from Live at the New South Showcase by Joe Cat



I live down in Silver-thread City.
working in a sawmill most of my life
Never want to move from Silver-thread City
This is where I found my beautiful wife

To get the logs to the mill in Silver-thread City
We have to un-jam the river with big long pikes
There’s not a church in Silver-thread City
But in the hospital tent you’ll pray for your life
But in the hospital tent you’ll pray for your life

Lots of single girls in Silver-thread City
Married men see them as widowed-wives
Hearts and souls are strong in Silver-thread City
In lovers arms they cry through the night

Im an old man at 20 in Silver-thread City
All this hard living took time off my side
Our train pulls out from Silver-thread City
At 20 years old well start a new life.
