Where Has My Hometown Gone Lyrics

by Craig Morgan

Barely 18, thought I knew it all
My little hometown was way too small
For the big dreams I'd been dreaming
I thought the fast lane and bright lights was what I was needin'

A few long years have come and gone
I finally saved enough to get back home
To the hills, the creeks and timbers
Where's that slow paced laid back place I remember?

Tell me where has my hometown gone?
Lord, this looks nothing like the place that I come from
What happened to the down home road that I was raised up on?
Tell me where has my hometown gone?

There's a mini mall where I used to hunt squirrels
Time's made mommas out of the girls
I used to chase when I was younger
They say old Mayor Baker is six feet under

Riverview Drive is up to four lanes
No whistle blows from that midnight train
That used to haul out of Southfield Mines
Yeah, that quiet little place is just a memory of mine

Tell me where has my hometown gone?
Lord, this looks nothing like the place that I come from
What happened to the down home road that I was raised up on?
Tell me where has my hometown gone?

I miss my fishin' hole
Barber pole, front porch swing
Drive in, skating rink, Dairy Queen

Tell me where has my hometown gone?
Lord, this looks nothing like the place that I come from
What happened to the down home road that I was raised up on?
Tell me where has my hometown gone?

Where's it gone?
My home
