Well I've been around
Since before the trains came through
Well I've seen a lot
But the first time my heart broke in two,
Was when they brought those Johnson brothers back,
To their momma with a flag

Well I'm a small town

There's hundreds just like me
Yeah but I'm the one
Well you happen to be
When you learned how to ride your first bike
Up and down my street
Well you grew up
And couldn't wait to just get out

I'm a small town

Where everyone knows everyone
There ain't no secrets around here
Sonny there you love me
You hang me for everything I am
Either I hold your heart
Or I hold you down

I'm a small town

Just a dot there on the map
If you blink you miss me
Yeah well go ahead and laugh
But I'm where you kissed your first someone
I'm where you hit your last home run
I'm where you lay your grandpa in the ground

Yeah, I'm a small town

Where everyone knows everyone
There ain't no secrets around here
Sonny you love me
You hang me for everything I am
Either I hold your heart
Or I hold you down

I'm a small town

You left in a cloud of dust
Big city bound
But I never once gave up
And when you looked into that newborn angel's eyes
And it occurred
There was only one place good enough for here

Where everyone knows everyone
There ain't no secrets around here
Sonny you love me
You hang me for everything I am
Either I hold your heart
Or I hold you down

I'm a small town

I'm a small town

I'm a small town
I'm a small town
I'm a small town
Yeah I'm a small town
