lyrics

MY HOMETOWN

MY HOMETOWN'S NO COLD STAR
MY HOMETOWN SAYS WHATCHA ARE'S
ALRIGHT WITH ME

THINGS JUST ARE THE WAY THEY ARE
AND WHAT THEY ARE IS
HOW THEY ALWAYS WILL BE

MAIN STREET'S GRIT IS GOLDEN CINDER
LIFE NEVER TASTES LIKE GRAVEL
THERE'S NO WRONG WAY TO DO IT

I CAN CARE AND NOT BE CHAINED
I CAN STARE AND NOT BE BLAMED
THE GIRLS ARE WISE THAT WAY

AND THEY SAY "WE'RE WISE TO YOU, TOO...CITY BOY"

MY HOMETOWN WAS ALWAYS WORKING
HOMETOWN HOPED HE WAS CREATING
A TICKET OUT OF HERE

HOMETOWN TRIED TO MOVE AWAY
HOMETOWN TRIED TO CHEAT HIS FATE
HOMETOWN OFTEN VISITS ME

AND HOMETOWN ALWAYS SAYS...

I MISS THE TASTE OF MY CITY WATER
I MISS THE SNOW ON MY SIDEWALKS IN WINTER
I SHOULD'VE WAITED FOREVER IF I HAD TO
DOES ANYTHING HERE MEAN A DAMN THING TO YOU

AND I SAY...

OVER THERE IS THE SPARKLE MARKET
HERE'S A HOUSE NICKNAMED "ROCK CITY"
FOR A GOOD $2 HAIRCUT
TRY THE SHOP IN THE WISHBONE ALLEY

I DRINK MY BEER AT CAFE ST. RAYS
OR THE BLUE BAR IF IT RAINS
I'M THE TALLEST BUILDING IN MY HOMETOWN
THERE'S LOTS OF ROOM TO BE STRANGE

AND STRANGER...YOU MOVED AWAY
THIS IS MY HOMETOWN NOW
AND I DON'T HAVE TO GET ALONG WITH YOU
BUT YOU...YOU HAVE TO GET ALONG WITH ME.
