Nobody gets off in this town Trains don't even slow down My high school sweetheart's married and gone They met on a bus to San Antone They Greyhound stops! Somebody gets on But nobody gets off in this town Nobody gets off in this town Old folks 'round here wear a frown Now let me see if I can set the scene It's a one-dog town and he's old and mean There's one stop light but it's always green Nobody gets off in this town Nobody gets off in this town High school colors are brown They can't drag Main because it kicks up dust Their cars and their dreams area all starting to rust The high school dances are always a bust Nobody gets off in this Nobody gets off in this town They oughta just tear it down 'Cause in the winter you freeze and in the summer you fry Utility bill's the only thing that gets high I'd go for a drink but this county is dry Nobody gets off Nobody gets off Nobody gets off in this square old merry-go-round No, nobody gets off in this town

"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
