Si Kahn's song laments the loss of mill village culture in the small town of Aragon, Georgia, USA. Recognizing the sad universality of its theme, the song was recorded and retitled “Belfast Mill” by The Fureys in 1982 and released on their album "When You Were Sweet Sixteen".
Si Kahn has written "I'm real proud of what's happened with this song. It's taken on a life of its own, and traveled around the world and back. My oldest son Simon Kahn was in Dublin, Ireland, a few years back, and heard it coming out of a music store. They told him it was a traditional mill song from North Ireland called "Belfast Mill." Maybe now it is." https://sikahn.com/
