Life in a Northern Town [Live][*]
by Sugarland



Salvation Army band played
And the children drank lemonade
And the mornin’ lasted all day......... all day..

Through an open window came
Like Sinatra in a younger day
Pushin' the town away........away

Hey a ma ma ma into the night
Hey um um uma hay ah
Life in a northern town hey ma ma ma ma

Sat on the stony ground
He took a cigarette out
Everyone else came down to listen.
It was the winter 1963.
it felt like the world would freeze
And John F. Kennedy and the beatles

Hey a ma ma ma into the night
Hey um um uma hey ah
Life in a northern town hey ma ma ma ma

Hey a ma ma ma in the night
Hey um um uma hey ah
They shut the factory down hey ma ma ma ma

The evenin' had turned to rain.
Watched the water roll down the drain
As they followed him down ................ to the station.
He would never wave good-bye.
You could see it written in his eyes.
As the train pulled out of sight....... bye.......... bye…….

Hey a ma ma ma into the night
Hey um um uma hey ah
LIfe in a northern town hey ma ma ma ma

Take it easy on yourself hey a ma ma ma into the night
Hey um um uma hay ah
Life in a northern town hey ma ma ma ma

Hey a ma ma ma into the night
Hey um um uma hey ah
Life in a northern town
Hey ma ma ma ma

Hey a ma ma ma into the night
Hey um um uma hey ah
Life in a northern town
Hey ma ma ma ma
