Small Town Blues

This Old Round House
Small Town America
More than a catch phrase
A place that is lost in time
A place to be lost in America

Keep hold in Small Town America
Where my business is yours
Where the neighbors are watching
And gossiping at the local bar

Small Town America
Not the political fantasy
The real dream has become nightmare
Forgotten by the rest of America

Keep time in Small Town America
Where meth is used to forget
Where everyone picks their poison
And tries to hide from time

Small Town America
Not the religious myth
The apostates mingle with the faithful
Dancing at the ball of a declining empire

Count days in Small Town America
Where a voice in the wind dies
Where the crossroads lead nowhere
And getting away is every child's dream

Small Town America
More than a catch phrase
A place that is lost in time
A place to be lost in America
