lyrics

Home

This old filling station
It’s about all that’s left around here
The old men hang around and play 42
And the younger men say someday they’ll drive to salvation
Somewhere down the line
But they always wind up safe in bed
Once they’ve had a few

And some folks call this a one-horse town
Hell there ain’t even one horse around
No cowboys, no rodeo
The years are long and lonesome here
Time hangs heavy in the air
This ain’t nowhere
Except home

I believe there’s legends somewhere in Texas
But they don’t live around here
Maybe somewhere farther down the road
Where the boots are shiny and the whiskey’s good
But if I drink enough of this Lone Star beer
And even if my boots ain’t shit
I see visions and I have no doubt
I’m passing out where brave men stood

And some folks call this a one-horse town
Hell there ain’t even one horse around
No cowboys, no rodeo
The years are long and lonesome here
Time hangs heavy in the air
This ain’t nowhere
Except home

Down at the graveyard
They got some action going on
Another soul faithfully departing
It’s getting so we got more ghosts dead than living
I never did play dominoes
But I’m thinking about starting

And some folks call this a one-horse town
Nothing to do when the sun goes down
No night life, no picture show
You just sit around and watch the moon rise
And rock away in your old rocking chair
Welcome to nowhere
And this ain’t ever gonna be nowhere
Except home
