  1. Little Town

From the album Somebody, Somewhere


In the town where I was from,
we all knew everyone
The air was sweet and the night full of song

but it was hard for us to stay
too little work, too little pay
and one by one we up and went away

Little town, we let you go
Your streets are empty and your shops are all closed
Times were hard, we didn’t know
all we had to lose until you’re gone

It was quiet, the lights were low,
there’s time to think and space to grow
We didn’t miss so much cause we knew to take it slow

but the folks who live downtown
They walk fast, eyes on the ground
They don’t seem to see the world spinning round them

Take care and don’t forget
or there may be no town left.
