Trent Willmon – Population 81 lyrics
There used to be a sign saying "Welcome To
Population 82"
Just a little town with no line streets
Where I Loved you and you loved me
But there ain't been a day of sun
Since this town has become
Population 81

We used to lay beside the lake
And talk about the plans we'd make
We'd build a house by that old oak tree
Make it population 83
Now those dreams have turned to dust
Since this town has become
Population 81

(Chorus 1)
I threw a penny in the wishing well
And I made a wish that wished you well
And I watched it sink away from me
Away from me

Now when I go down to the corner store
Where the old men sit out on the porch
I hear what they don't say to me
But they'll talk about it when I leave
Cause they know what's done is done
And that this town has become
Population 81

(Chorus 2)
I took a walk out on the bridge
And I dropped that diamond off the edge
And I watched it sink away from me
Away from me
Away from me

There used to be a sign saying "Welcome To
Population 82"
Just a little town with no line streets
