Well I've been lost in this town even though I know my way around, didn't take me long until I found the devil.
With just one word I knew his voice, it's the one I heard with every choice I made just tryin' to be a rebel In a small town In a small town

If you jumped off of our front porch you'd land right where the Civil War was fought, it's never been forgoten
Just 20 miles to the interstate there's a Burger King and a Motel 8 and the only thing between here and there is cotton

Jeffery prays to Jesus asking him please to help us through one more day
Jenny gets high she'll waste her life, me I just ran away From a small town from a small town

Sometimes it was heaven sometimes hell, kinda like church kinda like jail, there's a water tower that says "welcome to nowhere"
As soon as I could I was long gone, my jeans were torn, my hair was long, now I can't believe I wanna go back there To a small town to a small town

Jeffery prays to Jesus askin him please to help us through one more day
Jenny gets high she'll waste her life, me I just ran away but I knew I'd come back some day to a small town to a small town
Oh to a small town to a small town
Whoo whoo whooo whooo whoo whooo ohhh to a small town
