  • My mom and dad arrived
    1975
    Houses were all so cheap, man alive
    My dad was diggin' holes
    My momma drove the bus
    They bought a little house and they made love
    They don't make anything in that town now

    I had a old Ford truck
    Swung by to pick you up
    Drove down your daddy's lane and we drove back up
    We went to see some play
    When I took you back home again
    We parked in your daddy's bean field and we made out
    They don't make anything in that town now

    My friend Ryan drove
    Full speed off the road
    For him that was it, but his truck got fixed
    At the gathering
    I got asked to sing
    I sang, "For every mile of road you got to make two miles a ditch"
    They don't make anything in that town now

    All them chained up doors
    Windows made of wood
    That is hideous now, it was never that good
    I was gonna drive a truck
    I was gonna answer phones
    I started making up songs and made it out
    They don't make anything in that town now
    They don't make anything in that town now Writer/s: Donovan Woods
