Song Description

A SONG ABOUT A VERY SMALL TOWN THAT RELIED FOR IT'S EXISITENCE ON PASSERSBY

Story Behind the Song

i PASSED THROUGH THIS PLACE ON TOUR WITH A SHOW

Lyrics

Town for tired people

A tiny outpost near the oilfields in a land of skinny trees
Just far enough away from where you want to find yourself tomorrow.
There?s satellite tv in all the tiny motel rooms
Cuz if you're there there?s nothing else to do
It?s a place to lay your head
When you?re very nearly dead
It?s a town for tired people passing through

It doesn?t have the sights or history of a final destination
But it has what you need if you?ve been on the road since sometime yesterday.
It?s a mindless change of scene from the places you are in between
It knows you well and sees just what to do
There?s quick or hearty fare
And minor car repair
In a town for tired people passing through.

Very few will ask about the giant hockey stick
that stands beside the Cozy Inn motel
There?s a kid whose family lives just down the way
Who?s playin up there in the NHL
And it?s a point of pride
And there?s a big parade
First Sunday in July
That for at least one hour will block the highway.

They make their living from the wired and weary drivers
Who aren?t there long enough to say goodbye
So there?s a billboard as you?re heading out of town
Saying Thank You ? For Deciding Not to Fly

There?s a local hockey team ?they call themselves the Ramblers
They drive to play in other little towns and other towns drive here as well
And the story is the same = arenas packed for every game
And there?s something that the visitors all know
Where they?re from and where they are
There?s a motel with a bar
With breakfast anytime and coffee that?s a crime
And gasoline to sell to dozy clientele
They?ve worked in one or two cuz hey that?s what ya do
In a town for tired people passing through
