"This Town" lyrics

This Town

Well if you ever want to get depressed just come to this town
Nothing to do from dinner to breakfast in this town
Four street lights and one old grocery
I ain't long to stay here no siree
I'm bound to catch the next greyhound leaving this town

I've seen towns but no town's as bad as this town
It don't take long to feel lowdown in this town
Soon cotton's gone opened up and I'm gonna pick it
Just long enough to make enough to buy myself a ticket
I'm bound to catch the next greyhound leaving this town

Here I stand on the dusty road leaving this town
A hoping that dog ain't got a full load leaving this town
The state built new routes just for travel
They got the pavement and we got the gravel
That's the reason everything's dying around here in this town

Well there's lots of sunshine very little hay in this town
The mail don't run but every other day in this town
Four street lights and one old grocery
I ain't long to stay here no siree
I'm bound to catch the next greyhound leaving this town

Well we don't reap we don't sow in this town
Things are so bad that the weeds won't grow in this town
One two three four five six seven
This town can go to one place I'm going to heaven
I'm bound to catch the next greyhound leaving this town
