lyrics

Been hanging around my hometown
feels like nothing here could ever get me down
Mama in the kitchen, Papa out back
still have me doing dishes, putting them on the drying rack

Now I've spent many years out on the road
always carried a heavy heavy load
but as i stroll down old main street
i feel so light on my feet

Cause there's something about this old place
that puts a smile on my face
Friday nights out watching football
no strange stares when i yell howdy y'all
Grandma's hat on the front pew
and all these memories of you

riding around in your old pickup truck
reminds me how life is making more than making the buck
years back i headed out on my own
to stand on my own two feet, prove i was good as grown

but this old heart never got out of second gear
she looked around said think i'll stay right here
now as i head on out to the edge of town
she tugs at me says honey turn around

CHORUS

Now I'm home thinking how fast I ran away
wondering if i could do it again someday
now if you stop me at that old screen door
i promise honey i won't run no more

CHORUS
