Over The Rhine – Hometown Boy lyrics

Hey love, what do you say
We get outta here today
You ain't found your footing yet
But someday you're going to fly
My hometown boy

Cars up on blocks
The neighborhood's gone to hell
You wonder if the whole world's breakin' down
But you feel somethin' you feel the need to run
But you don't know why my hometown boy

No love
No sloe gin back porch nights for you
We've got work to do
White trash blowin' down the street

Just pipe dreams on paper
But starting tomorrow
We've gotta try
Me and my hometown boy
