So your hometown's bringin' you down
Are you drownin' in the small talk and the chatter?
Are you gonna step into line like your daddy done?
Punchin' the time and climbing life's long ladder

You've been howlin' at the moon like a slack-jawed fool
And breaking every rule they can throw on
Well, one of these days is gonna be right soon
You'll find your legs and go and stay gone

Young man, full of big plans
And thinkin' about tomorrow
Young man, gonna make a stand
You beg, you steal, you borrow
You beg, you steal, you borrow

Pull all the friends that you knew in school
They used to be so cool, now they just bore you
Well look at 'em now, already pullin' the plow
So quick to take to grain like some old mule

Young man, full of big plans
And thinkin' about tomorrow
Young man, gonna make a stand
You beg, you steal, you borrow
You beg, you steal, you borrow

Dreamin' of the day you're gonna pack your bags
Put the miles away
Oh, just grab your girl and go where no one knows you
What will all the old folks say?

So the hometown's bringin' you down
Are you drownin' in the small talk and the chatter?
Are you gonna step into line like your daddy done?
Punchin' the time and climbing life's long ladder

Young man, full of big plans
And thinkin' about tomorrow
Young man, gonna make a stand
You beg, you steal, you borrow
You beg, you steal, you borrow
