Back to My Hometown lyrics

My Hometown

Well, I had a buddy back in '81 and we made ourselves a pact
We were heading for the new pipeline we were never coming back
Well we worked 80 hours making time and a half
But La Grange was too damn hot
We drove back home at the end of that week and we spent it all on pot

So I'll see you in Houston If I ever get out that way
I'll see you in Dallas but I won't have long to stay
If you're ever out west son and your feeling like slowing down
I'll see you around, around my hometown

Well, I played ball every single fall I could run just like the wind
Went to college like they asked me too but they didn't ask my friends
Don't think I seen a single classroom but I drank a lot of beer
My buddies still love to listen to me when I talk about that year

So I'll see you in Houston If I ever get out that way
I'll see you in Dallas but I won't have long to stay
If you're ever out west son and your feeling like slowing down
I'll see you around, around my hometown

Now I got myself a little band and we're pretty good I guess
But I never learned how to wear my hair and I never learned how to dress
So I'm leaving for the last time honey I'm never more to roam
Gonna pack my bags a little heavy
This time gonna head my ass back home

So I'll see you in Nashville if I ever get out that way
I'll see you in Austin but I won't have long to stay
If you're ever out west son and your feeling like slowing down
I'll see you around, around my hometown
I'll see you around, around my hometown
