US Mill is the 10th song on the album Full Force Galesburg.


Way up north
Down the road a little
Back in New England
Right here in the middle
And all way out west

We had our ears to the ground
All of our dreams resting in the same spot
Listening for the old sound
And it was ringing so clear as crystal
And it was shining as bright as gold
Grain gathering on the stone floor
And we were spring-heeled and we were real cold
All summer long
Deep into autumn
In a high room
And down here in the bottom
Down here in the bottom
