Long Since Gone (Mallonee Bill)

Smoke driftin' from a wood fire Way back in the pines of carolina... Closing down store...one year more Of coming up short Chorus: Hung heads and heavy sighs Winter comin' on What lil' was left is Long....since....gone The fields? They're all barren Factory up & moved it overseas Boarded up town Ghosts walkin' the streets And they all say one thing Back on "the hil"l It ain't come back yet Maybe it never will Old ways...old paths All of 'em drowned...in a sea of progress History doubles back...to shake hands with you When you've got nothing to trade on...you've nothing left to lose
