Steel Town

Album: No Guts. No Glory (2010)
  • I work for a livin'
    So, Mr., don't call me sir
    I spend my whole life giving
    For nothing much in return but scars and burns

    Steel town
    Living in a steel town
    Free and proud
    Steel town
    Working in a steel town
    My hometown

    I got my high-school sweetheart
    And my hometown team
    Yeah, with my friends all drinking at the corner bar
    It's all that I need 'cause I'm living free

    Steel town
    Living in a steel town
    Free and proud
    Steel town
    Working in a steel town
    My hometown
    Keep on burning
    Keep on turning

    I'm branded by the fire
    My blood's running hot
    And I'll be damned if I don't stand and fight
    'Cause this steel town is all that we got

    Steel town
    Living in a steel town
    Free and proud
    Steel town
    Working in a steel town
    My hometown
    Steel town
    Living in a steel town
    Free and proud
    Steel town
    Working in a steel town
    My hometown Writer/s: JOEL FRANCIS O'KEEFFE, RYAN O'KEEFFE
