    Lyrics

    The banks of the river run through my hometown

    As a boy I ran the dirt roads and I scraped my knees

    Well, they paved the roads eventually

    With neon signs and car dealerships and diners

    The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends

    I saw the pretty women as I walked through town

    Well, I moved away soon as I turned sixteen

    Figured I was old enough to go and work a job

    Well, I floated down main street, pools of car lights

    Overcame me wishing, I was still back home

    The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends

    I saw the pretty women as I walked through town

    Well, Jacksonville's a city with a hopeless streetlight

    Seems like you're lucky, if it ever change from red to green

    I was born in an abundance of inherited sadness

    And .50 cent picture frames bought at a five and dime

    I ended up a soldier on the weekend

    Looking for a vacancy I was unable to find

    Somewhere the night sky hangs like a blanket

    Shoot it with my cap gun just to make it, seem like stars
