Hugged your friends
Kissed your mamma goodbye
Baby in your arms and a tear in your eye
Twelve hundred miles and you never asked why from me?

Me and the baby an' you side by side
We all knew we was in for a long hard ride
Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide it seemed
Honked the horn when we crossed the state line
Woke up the baby an' she started to cry
She must've known what we were goin' to find

This ain't nothin' but a heartbreak town
Square people in a world that's round
An' they watch you dancin', without a sound
It ain't nothing', no nothin'
Take your number and you stand in line
An' they watch to see how high you're gonna climb
Pat on the back an' better luck next time
It ain't nothin', no, it ain't nothin' but a heartbreak town

Stardust, well, it's a funny thing
It can make you cuss, it can make you sing
An' the need to touch, it gets hard to explain some days
Seen 'em rise an' I've seen 'em fall
Some get nothin' an', Lord, some get it all
Some just run while others crawl away
Hold my hand baby, don't let go
I've got some front money an' I've got a next show
An' I'm, I'm gonna need you, down this yellow brick road

This ain't nothin' but a heartbreak town
Square people in a world that's round
An' they watch you dancin', without a sound
It ain't nothing', no, it ain't nothin' no, ho
Take your number and you stand in line
An' they watch to see how high you're gonna climb
Pat on the back an' better luck next time
It ain't nothin', no, it ain't nothin'
But a heartbreak town, town
Heartbreak town
