John Martyn – Small Town Talk lyrics

It's only small town talk
You know how people are
They can't stand to see you
Being who you are.

It's only small town talk
Don't pay it no mind
Don't believe a word they say
They do it to you every time.

You can't believe everything you hear
Only half of what you might see
But if you have to believe in anyone
I'd believe, darling, believe in me.

It's only small town talk
A well-known fact
You don't even know
How one other might react
To what you're thinking
What are they thinking.

It's only small town talk
They're telling all the lies
And make some people crazy
They don't realize we're still thinking.

We're only people, trying to live together
We're trying to make this little life work
Who are we to judge one another
It may lead to tears or maybe something even worse.

It's only small town talk
You know how people are
They can't stand to see you
Being just exactly who you are.

It's small town talk
Pittle, pattle, it's small town talk
Tittle, tattle, it's small town talk.
