Rearview Town

Album: Rearview Town (2018)
  • Wipe the footprints off my dash
    Tore up those sun-faded photographs
    Threw 'em in the wind, ya'll can have it back
    I'm outta here
    I stuck my middle finger up in the sky
    Flipped off that "ya'll come back" sign
    Looked in the mirror one last time
    And watched it disappear

    It ain't nothin' but a rearview town
    Broken hearts and rusted plows
    Roots ripped right up out of the ground
    Never thought I'd ever leave it
    It ain't nothin' what it used to be
    Population minus me
    On the other side of that dust cloud
    Ain't nothin' but a rearview town

    I could tough it out, but what's the use?
    A place that small, it's hard to do
    Too much of her to run into
    And so much road to somewhere new

    It ain't nothin' but a rearview town
    Broken hearts and rusted plows
    Roots ripped right up out of the ground
    Never thought I'd ever leave it
    It ain't nothin' what it used to be
    Population minus me
    On the other side of that dust cloud
    Ain't nothin' but a rearview town

    It ain't nothin' but yesterday
    One less truck rollin' down Main
    Ain't nothin' left to say

    It ain't nothin' what it used to be
    Population minus me
    On the other side of that dust cloud
    Ain't nothin' but a rearview town
    Ain't nothin' but a rearview town Writer/s: Kelley Lovelace, Bobby Pinson, Neil Thrasher
