Song Description

It's always your hometown, no matter how you remember it.

Lyrics

Hometown
(c) Matthews/Naismith/Evans

V1
It's Winter 1985
My Hometown's fighting hard to stay alive
the steelmill's struggling, times are tough
the drugstore's closing down
I guess hes had enough

There didn't seem no choice
for the good guys and the rest of us
we thought we were the toughest boys
till we cried on that bus

Ch
The schoolgates where we used to wait
till all the school girls arived at 8
the first time Katy Sanders turned you down
the music at the corner shop
and soccer on the parking lot
I guess we always thought we'd stay around
My Hometown

V2
September 1992
I'm driving north so chose to detour through
it all seemed dark and cold and small
I couldn't understand what I could miss at all

I pulled up for a break
where the station used to be
I closed my eyes and thought
this place created me ..

Ch

Br.
Go back today it's different now
they've made it cleaner but I don't know how
the kids have jobs but not in steel
and there's a pride in this,
I know just how they feel

Ch..
