....North Carolina, moving forward after a bad reverse,
not long ago this City was just waiting for the hearse;
Cannon Mills moved overseas, the town was gone,
but better time are here, it's busy and it wasn't to long.
Dole Foods and the University of North Carolina, and Duke too,
opened the mills for research, there's lots to do;
it's too bad those things can't happen in other places,
Kannapolis must have been in someones good graces.
Top: The mills as they look today.
Middle: The City - it's easy to see how much of the city is taken up by the old Cannon Mills,
the City was named for Cannon, just spelled with a K.
Bottom: A monument to Dale Earnhardt, the late NASCAR driver. He and "little E" were born here and Carl Edwards too.
