    Lyrics

    If you ever want to get depressed just come to this town
    Nothing to do from dinner to breakfast in this town

    Four street lights and one old grocery
    I ain't long to stay here no siree
    I'm bound to catch the next greyhound
    Leavin' this town

    I've seen towns, but no town as bad as this town
    It don't take you long to feel lowdown in this town
    Soon the cotton's gonna open up and I'm gonna pick it
    Just long enough to make enough to buy myself a ticket
    I'm bound to catch the next greyhound
    Leavin' this town

    Here I stand on the dusty road leavin' this town
    Hopin' that dog ain't got a full load leavin' this town
    The state built new access for travel
    They got the pavement 'n we got the gravel
    That's the reason everything's dying round here
    In this town

    We got very little sunshine day to day in this town
    The mail don't run but every other day in this town

    Four street lights and one old grocery
    I ain't long to stay here no siree
    I'm bound to catch the next greyhound
    Leavin' this town

    Well we don't reap, we don't sow in this town
    Things are so bad the weeds won't grow in this town

    One, two, three, four, five, six, seven
    This town can go the other place I'm going to heaven
    I'm bound to catch the next Greyhound
    Leavin' this town
