Back to My Little Town lyrics

My Little Town (Audio)

In my little town I grew up believing
God keeps His eye on us all
And He used to lean upon me
As I pledged allegiance to the wall

Lord, I recall my little town

Coming home after school
Flying my bike past the gates of the factories
My mom doin' the laundry
Hangin' our shirts in the dirty breeze

And after it rains theres a rainbow
And all of the colors are black
Its not that the colors arent there
Its just imagination they lack

Everythings the same
Back in my little town
My little town, my little town

Nothing but the dead and dying
Back in my little town
Nothing but the dead and dying
Back in my little town
Nothing but the dead and dying
Back in my little town

In my little town I never meant nothing
I was just my father's son
Saving my money, dreamin' of glory
Twitching like a finger on the trigger of a gun

Leaving nothing but the dead and dying
Back in my little town
Nothing but the dead and dying
Back in my little town

Nothing but the dead and dying
Back in my little town
Nothing but the dead and dying
Back in my little town
