Windsor Now and Then
A song written by the late Ed Kohn
Two hundred years and more we’ve been
A town gone through hard times and then
We’ve raised our heads up high again
Like a Phoenix on the rise.
When the logging days had come and gone
And the tanning mills had all moved on
And the Ball Bridge Works closed down
We turned to what we had.
From Windsor Jambs to Estes (Sangar’s) Store
This little town is steeped in lore;
If you don’t know what a community’s for
Then Windsor’s not your style.
Hiking trails and Christmas trees
Maple sap and a summer breeze
Baseball games, cross country skis
Is what we have today.
But a town’s not made of bricks and stones
Not even trees nor roads nor homes
It’s made of muscle, skin, and bones
And the love of folks like you.
