Small Town Jericho Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, it's two miles east to west
Only four miles north to south
And when you pass the only red light
You will see the Pastor's house
People look you in the eye
And they smile at you and wave
Yeah, they always take the time
To stop and ask you, "How's your day?"

It's hard to say goodbye
'Cause baby, it's a good life

At the high school football game
Is where I got my first kiss
I still feel the butterflies
I still taste it on my lips
And when we lost our uncle Jake
Back in 1983
We heard daddy upstairs weepin'
So we cried ourselves to sleep

It's hard to say goodbye
'Cause baby, it's a good life

Goodbye to memories that I saved
Goodbye to all the friends I made
Goodbye to all the home I'll ever know
Small town Jericho

And every road here looks the same
This ol' town won't ever change
And that's what I love the most
And it's the reason I must go

I put boxes on the porch
Daddy puts them in the car
Best to get the loadin' done
Won't be easy in the dark
'Cause I'm leavin' after midnight
And if anyone asks why
I wanna wait 'til mama's sleepin'
'Cause I can't bear to see her cry

It's hard to say goodbye
'Cause baby, it's a good life

Goodbye to memories that I saved
Goodbye to all the friends I made
Goodbye to all the home I'll ever know
Small town Jericho
Goodbye
