John Hughes – Company Town lyrics

When I was a boy My Mama worked hard
My Daddy worked the grave shift down In the ship yard
In this company town

When I went to school, I sat in the back
Was there that I made my plan of attack
To get out of this town
Out of this Company town
Company town, Company town, boy

But I got in trouble with a girl from school
So we both got jobs and worked like mules
In this company town
In this company town

Oh I learned some lessons, though they might’ve come slow
Making a living and making a life’s Not the same you know
Company town Company town, boy
Company town Company town, boy

I did my best to love her But it never did take
So I dug right in for my kid’s sake In this company town
In this company town
We went to church And I drove them to school
Everybody knows, you live by the rules
In this company town In this company town

Oh I learned some lessons, though they might’ve come slow
Making a living and making a life’s Not the same you know
Company town Company town, boy
Company town Company town, boy
