Lyrics

A stranger on familiar streets

Walking fast and incomplete

Looking like old times

I want to wave goodbye

To my old hometown

 

The river floods my last hurrah

The saddest smile I ever saw

It cracks your wanderlust

to pocketfuls of dust

My old hometown

 

Spinning gold to straw

Snow that never thaws

I feel my life’s a hand-me-down

In my old hometown

 

There’s a frozen wishing well

And a broken carousel

Our crooked days are long

the whiskey’s straight and strong

In my old hometown

 

Days twist away

Dreams get delayed

It always seems to be sundown

In my old hometown
