My Town
Written by Jimmy Whiffen © 2011 (SOCAN)
Verse 1
Speedin’ through town on a Saturday night
Chasin’ through the fog come the red and blue lights
It’s just another ordinary day in my town
Johnny’s smokin’ up behind the town hall
Sally gives a blow he’s got his back against the wall
It’s a regular thing to do in my town

Pre Chorus
And people around here say hello how you doin’
Then thy talk about whose been screwin’ who
But they don’t really care

Chorus
In my town it’s a little bit rough
But you can make it through if you’re tough enough
And you can come out of here
Not looking any worse than the rest of us in my town

Verse 2
Old men and old ladies they turn a blind eye
They lock up there doors around supper time
As long as it’s no bother they don have to lie in my town
People lookin’ in from across the border line
Say it’s too bad it’s a waste of time
But growin’ up has treated me just fine in my town

Pre Chorus
Chorus

Bridge
Rocks are a flyin’
Little kids cryin’
Everybody comes when somebody’s dyin’

Chorus
Tag
Ya you can come out of here, no worse for the wear and tear
Not looking any worse than the rest of us in my town
Ya not looking any worse than the rest of us in my town
