An Old Log Cabin For Sale

print

While strolling alone in the country
Reviewing the scenes new and old
I found an old fashioned log cabin
So beautiful there to behold

A stranger was standing in silence
His eyes firmly fixed on the door
My heart ached in pity to see him
For these were the words that it bore

In the sign read an old log cabin for sale
An old oaken bucket and well
Easy terms just keep a log on the fire each day
And a light burning bright in the dell

Many years an old couple so patiently looked
For a boy who’s last promise did fail
Now the old rockin’ chairs will be rockin’ no more
There’s an old log cabin for sale

How long has it been since you’ve written
A letter to mother and dad
How long has it been since you’ve seen them
Oh why don’t you make their heart glad

Too soon will the old home be vacant
A candle light gleaming no more
Don’t wait ’til too late to remember
There may be a sign on the door

Many years an old couple so patiently looked
For a boy who’s last promise did fail
Now the old rockin’ chairs will be rockin’ no more
There’s an old log cabin for sale
