Lyrics

NOT IN OUR TOWN
By Bart Ambrose

The grill was hot, the beer is cold on the back porch at twilight
Bob and Ruth hangin out with a few friends on a Saturday night
Ruth said she heard on the news that day of more killing in the streets someplace far away
All they could do was shake their heads and say

It couldn't happen here, not in our town
Those things only happen somewhere else
Not in our backyard, not with us around
It couldn't happen here

Bob and Ruth?s son got hooked on the stuff cooked in a house down the street
Now he's too broke to ease his pain and steals from everyone he meets
He lost control in a drug filled rage Monday morning at school with Daddy's .38
All folks would do was shake their heads and say

It couldn't happen here, not in our town
None of us raised our kids that way
Nothing can go wrong, not with us around
It couldn't happen here, not in our town

The senseless loss of life made all the network news
People watched, shook their heads, said there's nothing they could do and

It couldn't happen here, not in our town
We don't have those problems on our streets
Not in our backyard, not with us around
It couldn't happen here, not in our town

(tag)
Not in our back yard, not with us around
Not in our town
