"In This 'Ole Town"

In this 'ole neck of the woods
It's full of busted dreams
It can shake your faith
Part of a common theme

Yeah, in these here stompin' grounds
There's countless yesterday's
Where your hope runs dry
Feels like we're wastin' away

Lift 1
Hopin' that our fate will change
Doin' the same 'ole crazy things
In this 'ole town

I've been a paycheck shy
Of payin' all my bills
My baby keeps us broke
Findin' all of them deals
I'm the butt end of a rumor
That's been goin' around
I been a working like a dog
But we never save a dime
I'm a six pack short
Of a real good time
And that's as good as it gets
Hangin' around
In this 'ole town

On this 'ole patch of ground
The waves can come a crashin' down
It's either sink or swim
Hope floats ....or it will drown

Yeah, in this 'ole world of mine
I'm just a branded fool
Drinkin' my blues away
Hell.... I got nothin' to lose

Lift 2
And it's enough to drive ya outta your mind
It's all just a matter of time
In this 'ole town

Repeat Chorus:

And on the main street drag
When you're cruisin' around
Nothin' much to do
A lot of joints are all closed down

Here in the ruins of paradise
Everything is rustin' away
But we're all gettin' by
Makin' do is the price we pay

Lift 3
But it can slip away before you know
Tryin' to hold on to a poor man's gold
In this 'ole town

Repeat Chorus:

And that's as good as it gets
In this 'ole town.......
