Well, it's two miles East to West 
Only four miles North to South 
And when you pass the only red light 
You will see the pastor's house 
People look you in the eye 
And they smile at you and wave 
Yeah, they always take the time 
To stop and ask you, 'How's your day?' 
It's hard to say goodbye 
'Cause baby, it's a good life 

At the high school football game 
Is where I got my first kiss 
I still feel the butterflies 
I still taste it on my lips 
And when we lost our Uncle Jake 
Back in 1983 
We heard Daddy upstairs weepin' 
So we cried ourselves to sleep 
It's hard to say goodbye 
'Cause baby, it's a good life 

[Chorus]
Goodbye to memories that I saved 
Goodbye to all the friends I made 
Goodbye to all the home I'll ever know 
Small town Jericho, (goodbye) 

And every road here looks the same 
This ol' town won't ever change 
And that's what I love the most 
And it's the reason I must go 

I put boxes on the porch 
Daddy puts them in the car 
Best to get the loadin' done 
Won't be easy in the dark 
'Cause I'm leavin' after midnight 
And if anyone asks why 
I wanna wait 'til Mama's sleepin' 
'Cause I can't bear to see her cry 
It's hard to say goodbye 
'Cause baby, it's a good life 

[Chorus]
