This Town Don’t Keep Its People.

(©2011 T. Land)

A lonely tender heart

Don’t have a chance here

it’s hard to put roots down in this cold cold ground

People pack it up , can’t face another day

broken trailers, rusted cars, signs of a quick get away

 

This town don’t keep its people ‘round

They all come long enough to find they aint strong enough

This town don’t keep its people ‘round

It a kind of a place that makes you face

Everything gone wrong

 

You were full of hope

We were a new love

It looked like something bright in this new found light

Blame it on the storms just don’t you blame me

Make another bed, find another town, tell another story

 

This town don’t keep its people ‘round

They all come long enough to find they aint strong enough

This town don’t keep its people ‘round

It a kind of a place that makes you face

Everything gone wrong

solo

 

This town don’t keep its people ‘round

They all come long enough to find they aint strong enough

This town don’t keep its people ‘round

It a kind of a place that makes you face

Everything gone wrong
