MY HOME TOWN

HOLD ON...
HOLD ON...
CAN'T SHUT ME DOWN...
GOTTA GET BACK...
TO MY HOME TOWN!

GOT MY TICKET!
PAID MY RESERVATION!
BEEN GONE TOO LONG...
IN THESE OLD SHOES!

TOO MANY MILES...
SINGIN' THOSE BLUES...
GOTTA GET BACK...
TO WHERE I BELONG!

CAN'T SHUT ME DOWN...
FROM MY HOME TOWN...
I PAID MY DUES...
FAR TOO LONG!

BEEN DOWN THAT ROAD,
THAT RAILROAD TRACK...
BEEN GONE TOO LONG...
SO TAKE ME BACK...
WHERE I BELONG!

GOT PEOPLE TO SEE,
TO SET ME FREE...
REMINDING ME
OF JUST WHO I AM...

HOLD ON...
HOLD ON...
BEEN GONE TO LONG...
GOTTA GET BACK...
TO MY HOME TOWN!
