Story Behind the Song

A man looks back at his home

Lyrics

` This One Horse Town


This one horse town has been a friend since I don't remember when
I left it once and I'm pretty sure I'll never leave again
There's a church ...and a school.... and a hardware store
But as long as I can remember there's been nothing more


Verse

This town put its arms around me in November '63
It gave me comfort all the years Vietnam might have called on me
It whispered softly in my ear and soothed my tortured brain
It breathed a quiet sigh of relief when the letter never came



Chorus

In this one horse town there was a train
That stopped every day
People used to board the train and go on their merry way
But something that seemed very sad to me
Nobody ever got off the train ......and stayed


Verse

This one horse town has always seemed to be a friend of mine
It donned a cloak of silence..... on November 9th
Not long after it mourned the loss and and helped fill the void
When I had to say goodbye...... to my only boy

Instru


Chorus

In this one horse town there was a train
That stopped every day
People used to board the train and go on their merry way
But something that seemed so very sad to me
Nobody ever got off the train ......and stayed



Verse

This one horse town I do believe it will always be here
Its strong and stubborn and tougher.... than it may appear
Its always there when I'm in despair or when I need a friend
And it will always be there... right to the very end

And it will always be there... right to the very end
And it will always be there... right to the very end
