nobody gets off in this town lyrics – garth brooks

n*body gets off in this town
trains don’t even slow down
my high school sweetheart’s married and gone
they met on a bus to san antone

the greyhound stops, somebody gets on
but n*body gets off in this town

n*body gets off in this town
old folks ’round here wear a frown
now let me see if i can set the scene
it’s a one-dog town and he’s old and mean

there’s one stop light but it’s always green
n*body gets off in this town

n*body gets off in this town
high school colors are brown
they can’t drag main because it kicks up dust
their cars and their dreams are all starting to rust

the high school dances are always a bust
n*body gets off in this town

n*body gets off in this town
they oughta just tear it down
’cause in the winter, you freeze
and in the summer, you fry

utility bill’s the only thing that gets high
i’d go for a drink but this county is dry

n*body gets off
n*body gets off
n*body gets off in this square, old merry-go-round
no, n*body gets off in this town
