Song Description

Why should we have to move away from our friends and family just to find work?

Story Behind the Song

A comment on the state of some of the towns in the UK and the US. Town centres are dying and people are having to move away from their home towns and sometimes countries just to find work.

Broadjam Member Reviews

What a good song. Reminds me a bit of Chris Rea and "Road To Hell". This song should get snapped up (if it hasn't already) for something like a road trip movie, without a doubt. Areally catchy number that had my foot tapping from the start. Awesome work!

Lyrics

My Little Town (The American Dream) ©2013


I took my girl down to Mexico I'd had enough of this town.
I don't know why I just had to go the vibes round here bring me down.
We flew down with no place to stay that was no big deal.
Slept on the beach day-to-day could just afford the one meal.
-------------------------------------

Chorus

I'm going nowhere in my little town
I've got to find a new scene.
Everyone's fighting for a handful of jobs
Whatever happened to the American dream?

-------------------------------------

Verse

At least it's sunny in Mexico made me feel good for a while.
People are friendly and wanna know just why I've traveled there all those miles.
A man we met says he'll help us out with a room we can stay in.
But when we see our new neighbourhood I guess we'd better start praying.
-------------------------------------

Chorus

I'm going nowhere in my little town
But it's better than what I've just seen.
Decline and decay in my little town
Whatever happened to the American dream?

Bridge

It's my little town and it's the place I love
But it's slowly dying in every neighbourhood.
I wanna go back and raise a family
but I can't find the things that I need.

Repeat 2nd Chorus
