Lyrics

NOTHIN' GOIN' ON
IN COMPANY TOWN
JUST A FEW PEOPLE
STANDIN' AROUND
THERE USED TO BE A FACTORY
UP ON THE HILL
THEY'RE TEARIN' IT DOWN
TEARIN' IT DOWN

DADDY GOT A JOB
A NEW LITTLE HOUSE
BACK WHEN THEY BUILT
THIS LITTLE TOWN
HE WORKED REAL LONG
THEY GAVE HIM A CARD
FOR THE COMPANY STORE
IN COMPANY TOWN
THERE USED TO BE A FACTORY
UP ON THE HILL
THEY'RE TEARIN' IT DOWN
TEARIN' IT DOWN

TAKE A LITTLE DRIVE ALL THROUGH THE SOUTH
FROM THE SANDHILLS DOWN
TO THE RIVER'S MOUTH
YOU CAN'T COUNT
ALL THE LITTLE TOWNS
WHERE THE BIG BOYS SHUT
THE FACTORIES DOWN
THERE USED TO BE FACTORIES
USED TO BE MILLS
THEY'RE TEARIN' EM DOWN
TEARIN' EM DOWN

DRIVE ON PAST
THE BORDER TOWNS
FOLLOW THE TRAIL
TO THE BIG BLACK CLOUD
IT'LL BLOW YOUR MIND
HOW THEY CRANK IT OUT
THAT'S WHERE THEY MOVED
OUR COMPANY TOWN
THERE USED TO BE A FACTORY
UP ON HILL
THEY'RE TEARIN' IT DOWN
TEARIN' IT DOWN
THERE USED TO BE A FACTORY
UP ON THE HILL
THEY'RE TEARIN' IT DOWN
GOTTA MAKE WAY
FOR A NEW LITTLE TOWN

NOTHIN' GOIN' ON
IN COMPANY TOWN
JUST A FEW PEOPLE
STANDIN' AROUND

NOTHIN' GOING ON
IN COMPANY TOWN

NOTHIN' GOIN' ON
IN COMPANY TOWN
