Been to Reno
Drives an El Camino
Can you dig that style?

Hip canteen
You always make the scene
You're a crazy child.

It's a sad thing
Bourbons all around
To stop that feeling when you're
Living
In a small town

You're long and lean
But things don't get you down
You're a top ten kingpin in the
Borders
Of your hometown

Can't get hip
You work the jobs I've quit
Don't you dig that style?

Won't admit
You just don't give a shit
Cause your mind gone wild.

It's a sad day
Bourbons all around
To stop that feeling when you're
Living in a small town

You're long and lean
But things don't get you down
You're a top ten kingpin in the
Borders
Of your hometown

Can't live to die-too easy
Why stick around
I want my live to please me
Not another small town hometown
Bringdown

This is it
You might as well get pissed
Don't you dig that style?

Make your trip
There ain't that much to miss
When your mind gone wild

It's a sad day
Bourbons all around
To stop that feeling when you're
Living
In a small town

You're long and lean
But things don't get you down
You're a top ten kingpin in the
Borders
Of your hometown
