Bobby Pinson – Nothin' Happens In This Town lyrics

The welcome sign is missin' an "O"
From a teenage 12 gage shotgun hole
Went on the county's list of things not to fix for ten years now
Nothin' happens in this town
You gotta cross the line to get a drink
Cause this ones dry and that one ain't
Ya you might wind up on a jail house bunk but you'll get out
Nothin' happens in this town

Happens everytime you turn around
We all know Joe coulda gone pro,
When he fills your tank he'll tell you to use oil
You don't see Jimmie when he ain't stoned
The girl next door is 6 months along, waitin' on a Greyhound
That's what happens when
Nothin' happens in this town

Last Saturday night I guess Sara got bored
Cause I got further than I got before
I ain't suppose to tell but what the hell
I'm sick of how
Nothin' happens in this town

(repeat 2x)

Nothin' happens in this town
Hey Joe, what's happenin?
