What's Left of a Small Town
by Brantley Gilbert



Grand daddy used to take me
Down town to the kinneys
Thats where all the old men go to reminisce
Ramble on about history dust off some old stories
Look back at the life theyve come to miss
I swear sometimes I can almost see
A picture of this small town back in 1943
Everythings black and white
And theres dirt on the street
It dont look at all what Im seein today

Riding around
Whats left of a small town
Makin my rounds
Waving hi to everyone around
Its in my blood its where I settle down
Lay me in the ground under whats left of a small town

You can still get a hair cut for less than ten bucks
If you go down to buds right off the square
Its been almost 10 years since they closed down that old mill
Thats what this whole town was built around
Theres a couple old dirt roads
Left down by old potts' farm
We used to throw down hard out there man we never did no harm
Well the counties offered thousands, man that old Potts wont give in
There development stops right at that barbed wire fence

Riding around
Whats left of a small town
Makin my rounds
Waving hi to everyone around
Its in my blood its where I settle down
Lay me in the ground under whats left of a small town

Riding around
Whats left of a small town
Makin my rounds
Waving hi to everyone around
Its in my blood its where I settle down
Lay me in the ground under whats left of a small town
