In my little town, I grew up believing
God keeps his eye on us all
He used to lean upon me
As I pledged allegience to the wall

Lord I recall - My little town. my little town,

Coming home after school
Riding my bike past the gates of the factories
My mom doing the laundry
Hanging our shirts in the dirty breeze

And after it rains there's a rainbow
And all of the colours are black
It's not that the colours aren't there
It's just imagination they lack
Everything's the same back, In my little town

Nothing but the dead and dying back in my little town
Nothing but the dead and dying back in my little town

In my little town, I never meant nothin' I was just my father's son
Savin' my money, dreamin' of glory
Twitching like a finger on the trigger of a gun

Nothing but the dead and dying back in my little town
Nothing but the dead and dying back in my little town
Nothing but the dead and dying back in my little town
Nothing but the dead and dying back in my little town
Nothing but the dead and dying back in my little town
Nothing but the dead and dying back in my little town
