That backward town in my rearview
Was gonna be my whole world
Till my factory job got shipped to Mexico
And a city boy stole my sweet girl 

I used to know every body by name 
Everybody's moved away 
Can't say that I'm really wantin' to go 
But I've run out of reasons to stay

This ain't nothin' like what I 
Had in mind for me 
But then again my future
Ain't what it used to be 

I thought like my dad and his daddy before 
That I woul die where I was born 
Live a small town dream in a big backyard
Raisin' babies and corn

Now here I am one eye on the road
Tryin' to read the map on the dash 
Nowhere close to making up my mind 
With a fork in the road comin' fast 

I thought like my dad and his daddy before 
That I woul die where I was born 
Live a small town dream in a big backyard
Raisin' babies and corn

I thought like my dad and his daddy before 
That I would die where I was born 
Live a small town dream in a big backyard
Raisin' babies and corn

That backward town in my rear-view 
Was gonna be my whole world
