You just thought that you knew about rumors man
But you ain't ever lived in my town
Population 153
And it's still goin down
What's his name's runnin' around with Mary
Hell last I heard he's already been married 3 times

You've been gone for what, about 8 years now?
And they're still spreadin' rumors about you
You grew your hair long and shaggy
And gettin' drunk is all that you do
They forgot that you play your music
Yeah they gave up on you a long, long time ago

God bless this town
It's so good to be back home
Yeah how you been doing
Lord, I know its been so long
Tell your family hello
I'm sure I'll see you around
Be sure to close the doors and lock 'em up
God bless this town

Small towns are supposed to be small
Until being big gets in the way
A man doesn't play by their rules
Then he's not welcome to stay
And politics don't care about 21 years of service
Being a puppet is something he'll never be

God bless this town
It's so good to be back home
Yeah how you been doing
Lord, I know its been so long
Tell your family hello
I'm sure I'll see you around
Be sure to close the doors and lock 'em up
God bless this town

Keep talking all you want
I guess thats all you ever do
Soon I'll find my place
And I'll wave as I pass through

God bless this town
It's so good to be back home
Yeah how you been doing
Lord, I know its been so long
Tell your family hello
I'm sure I'll see you around
Be sure to close the doors and lock 'em up tight
God bless this town
