My Town Lyrics

by Montgomery Gentry

There's a for sale sign on a big ol rusty tractor
you can't miss it it's the first thing that you'll see
and just up the road a pale blue water tower
with I love jenny painted in bright green
and that's my uncle ray there by the courthouse
he'll be lowering the flag when the sun goes down
this is my town

where I was born where I was raised where I keep
all my yesterday's where I ran off cause I got mad
when it came to blows with my old man
where I came back to settle down
it's where they'll put me in the ground
this is my town my town

well there ain't much goin on
here since they closed the mill
but that whistle still blows every day at noon
there's a bunch of us still going down to the diner
wondering if that interstate still coming through
come Sunday morning service at the church of Christ there ain't an empty seat to be found
this is my town

REPEAT CHORUS

well I bought and painted up that rusty tractor
you can't miss it it's sitting right there in our yard
the county came and took that water tower
and thats my jenny with the babies in the car
and we're off the Sunday service at the church of Christ and if we want a seat we better leave right now
maybe later me and uncle ray will show you around
my town
this is my town
REPEAT CHORUS
