Nobody Gets Off In This Town

Album: Garth Brooks (1989)
  • 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
