The town that I come from is small and unkind
If you don't keep a close eye, this town can rob you blind
I couldn't take any more of the gossip
I couldn't take any more of the lies
Couldn't look my best friend in his oxycotin eyes

And the sun rises over my farm house
Outside a town with nothing to do
Where our river runs a color that's anything but blue
This town is enough to make a grown man feel like crying
I come from the town where everyone is dying

If you commit a sin, the whole town knows before your feet even hit the ground
And there's a hundred churches, but God's nowhere to be found
So I'll spend my days on the lost highways
So many places left to roam
But burying my friends and hugging my mama's the only reason I've got to go home
