(Keith Stegall)

I grew up in a tiny town
Sidewalks rolled up
When the sun went down
And we played in the street
Til my mom said come eat
In that tiny town

My dad ran station by the railroad track
Half his life he spent on his back
Underneath a car
Lord he worked so hard
In that tiny town

They say home is where your heart is
And I guess it’s true
And they say you can’t go back but I close my eyes
And I’m driving through

My mom sold Avon is the neighborhood
And I’d wait in the car hoping she’d done good
So I’d have a dime to spend on the ice cream man
In that tiny town

Got the car when I was just fifteen
Five dollars bought a lot of gasoline
For the drive in picture show
Where we used to go
In that tiny town

They say home is where your heart is
And I guess it’s true
And they say you can’t go back but I close my eyes
And I’m driving through

Now the years they fly by oh so fast
So much of life we lose to the past
But I’m proud to say that I was raised
In a tiny town

They say home is where your heart is
And I guess it’s true
And they say you can’t go back but I close my eyes
And I’m driving through

I grew up in a tiny town
Sidewalks rolled up
When the sun went down
And we played in the street
Til my mom said come eat
In that tiny town
