The road goes straight to the town I'm headed for
Pretty cold town that I never seen before
I've trouble on my mind hope this new town will be kind
New people and a new job is what I need to find

New town new town now don't you let me down
I've travelled seven hundred miles
To be where I am bound
New town new town I'd like a chance to stay
Leave behind the old town and live a brand new way

My life isn't easy as I hear the new town call
You're headin for a future or you're ridin for a fall
And all through the day I can hear the old town say
You can't beat your troubles if you run the other way

New town new town now don't you let me down
I've travelled seven hundred miles
To be where I am bound
New town new town I'd like a chance to stay
Leave behind the old town and live a brand new way

Time is dragging as the road stretches on
And while the wheels are turning
My past is further on
And as the trees are going by I wonder what I'll do
And why I left the old town to gamble with a new

New town new town now don't you let me down
I've travelled seven hundred miles
To be where I am bound
New town new town I'd like a chance to stay
Leave behind the old town and live a brand new way

New town new town now don't you let me down
I've travelled seven hundred miles
To be where I am bound
New town new town I'd like a chance to stay
Leave behind the old town and live a brand new way
