Hometown Boy Lyrics

Just across the highway there's the Army store
And everytime I see it, I remember what it's for
My brother signed up so he could make his stink
They sent him to Iraq, it's just a year and a day
In the showdown, he was shot from the rear
They make those bullets sixteen miles from here.

All he ever wanted was his own piece of ground
And now it's 3 feet wide, six feet down
All he ever wanted was his own piece of ground
And I ain't ever gonna leave my hometown

Church window caught in the corner of my eye
Jacob's ladder shining out of the sky
Well, I'm dreaming of Suzy with the yellow hair
When I was small she used to live around here.
River Valley Baptist on a windy(?) road
I kissed her in the choir when she was twelve years
old.

Suzy went to school but I just sort of hung around
She came back and burned the damn church down.
Suzy went to school but I just sort of hung around
And I ain't ever gonna leave my hometown

Well, there's an Amoco pipeline, it cuts through the
town
Feed the thirsted mosquitoes, suck the oil from the
ground
I watch the sun go down through a hole in the pine
Then they left when they laid the power line
Well, that's a V8 boy, you can tell by the sound
But I ain't ever gonna leave my hometown

Sunday go to meeting about half past ten
I put on my best again
Got a half tank of gas
A beer in a can
We'll meet in back of Johnson's Land
And we'll try to get home by breakfast time
Put the whites in the wash get 'em out on the line

Before the stain sets, y'know the red turns to brown.
The rifle's in the rack before I hit town
Before the stain sets, y'know the red turns to brown.
And I ain't ever gonna leave my hometown

Well, there's an Amoco pipeline, it cuts through the
town
Feed the thirsted mosquitoes, suck the blood from the
ground
I watch the sun go down through a hole in the pine
Then they left when they laid the power line
Well, that's a twelve-gauge full choke, you tell by the
sound
But I ain't ever gonna leave my hometown
