HOMETOWN, USA

VERSE
When Aunt Nora cooked her collard greens South Pinckney Street
Knew all about it—for several days
And I earned what I blew on my girl Patty Jean
Down at the car wash—most Saturdays
Life was simple like the mind of my best friend
Wish I could run with my dog Snoopy once again

CHORUS
In my hometown—how I miss it
When life broke down—Mom and Dad could fix it
In the backyard where I's raised
Grows the greenest grass I’ve grazed
In my hometown—in my hometown, USA

VERSE
Like the night we left ole Jimmy at the ghost house
We didn’t get too far—he outran the car
And old man Palmer’s bull despised my bright red fishin’ hat
He chased me up a tree—more than once till after dark
Slide on boxes down a gulley filled with snakes
Ringin’ doorbells after neighbors pulled their shades

CHORUS
In my hometown—how I miss it
When life broke down—Mom and Dad could fix it
Oh, the backyard where I 's raised
Grows the greenest grass I’ve grazed
In my hometown—in my hometown, USA

BRIDGE
Now I don’t get back there the way that I used to
Momma died last fall and Dad in ‘92
Everyone I loved has gone and everything is changed
But in my heart it’ll always be the same

Repeat Chorus (2X)
