Our Town. (Iris Dement)



Just down the street beside that red neon light
That’s where I met my baby on one hot summer night
He was the tender and I ordered a beer
It’s been forty years and I’m still sat here

I can see the sun’s settin’ fast
And just like they say nothing good ever lasts
Goodnight and kiss me goodbye but hold on to your lover
Cause your heart’s Gonna cry

Chorus

Goodnight and say goodbye to our town, to our town
Can’t you see the sun’s settin’ down on our town, on our town
Goodnight

It’s there I met my baby’s and I had my first kiss
Walked down Main Street in the cold morning mist
Over there is where I bought my first car
It turned over once now it won’t go far

And I can see the sun settin’ fast
And just like they say nothing good ever lasts
Goodnight and kiss me goodbye but hold on to your lover
‘Cause your heart’s gonna to die


I sat on the porch and watch the lightning-bugs fly
But I can’t see too well, for tears in my eyes
I’m leaving tomorrow but I don’t want to go
I love you my town, you’ll always live in my soul
