Come Through the Sawmill


(Folk song)

Come through the sawmill, sawmill, sawmill,
Come through the sawmill all the day long.
This is the way you build a bridge, build a bridge, build a bridge,
This is the way you build a bridge all day long.


Formation: Students stand in two lines with partners facing each other.

  • Measures 1-4 = Partners hold each others’ wrists and do a sawing motion back and forth.
  • Measures 5-8 = Partners put hands up and form an arch. The partners at the front of each line walk under the bridge and join the lines at the end.
