Eric Church – Give Me Back My Hometown lyrics

Damn I used to loved this view, sit here and drink a few
Main street and the high school lit up on a Friday night
Down there it's another touchdown, man this years team is stout
I can hear em going crazy, and up here so am I

Thinkin bout you sittin there saying “I hate this, I hate it”
If you couldn't stand living here why'd you take it, take it

Give me back my hometown, cause this is my hometown

All the colors of my youth, the red, the green, the hope, the truth
Are beatin me black and blue, cause you're in every scene
My friends try to cheer me up, get together at the pizza hut
I didn't have the heart to tell em, that was our place

These sleepy street lights on every sidewalk, side street
Shed a light on everything that used to be

Give me back my hometown, cause this is my hometown

You can have my grandma's locket, the knife outta my grandpa's pocket
Yea my state champion jacket, I don't care you can have it
Every made memory, every picture, every broken dream
Yea everything, everything, everything

Give me back my hometown, cause this is my hometown
