While strolling along in the country,
Reviewing the scenes new and old,
I spied 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.

And the sign it read: "A log cabin for sale,
An old oaken bucket and well;
Easy terms, just keep an old log on the fire,
And a light burning bright in the dell."

A welcome I read on the floor mat,
An old braided rug by the door;
The hand of an angel had made it,
Like many a prayer bead before.
In an old rocking chair on she waited,
For one glimpse of him she had yearned;
But now he was standing in silence,
Too late, yes, too late he'd returned.

And the sign it read: "A log cabin for sale,
An old oaken bucket and well;
Easy terms, just keep an old log on the fire,
And a light burning bright in the dell."

Many years an old couple so patiently looked,
For their boy whose last promise had failed;
Now the old rocking chair will be rocking no more,
There's an old log cabin for sale.
There's an old log cabin for sale.
