CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


For The Love Of A Small Town Lives and loves, and friends there in that
Lives and loves, and friends there in that
Lives and loves, and friends there in that small town

Day after day
Slipping away from the life
That I loved and I never realized
I've had my failures
I've had my victories too
Drinking my success like a cheap Bordeaux
And even now
I don't know how I
Ever let things get this far away
A boy can run, in childish fun but
A man's gotta stop and turn, and learn to make a stand one day
His generations should show him the way
Cuz' there's no knowing where you're going
Till you understand where you're coming from
And as the years go by you see with an understanding eye into the

Lives and loves, and friends there in that
Lives and loves, and friends there in that
Lives and loves, and friends there in that small town

Many, many years later
Walking down the city street
Chance encounter with an old friend from the old neighborhood
We caught each other's eye
We smiled in recognition, a warm embrace
And then he began to reminisce
He spoke to me, as if it all happened yesterday
The crazy things we used to do when we were kids
A swing and a miss on the field of dreams
To that first kiss with the prom night queen
We laughed together as he told me
How his memories had sustained him through the years
And as I stood there listening
I had a hard time holding back my tears
For I had simply forgotten those memories from my growing years
But as for him it was so clear how the man came from the boy came from the

Lives and loves, and friends there in that
Lives and loves, and friends there in that
Lives and loves, and friends there in that small town
Old friends that have come and gone
Some of them just drifted away
Some of them died well before their time was due
Some of them just got bad breaks
Some learned from their mistakes
And some always seem to get it right and breeze on through
Now and again
In a quiet moment I'll think of them
Their faces flash through my mind like the evening news
Summer days and small town ways, to big ideas and power plays
Grew up steady in a town that helped us learn to find our way
Some of us chose to leave
Some of us, well, we just chose to stay
You make your plan, you make a stand
You find yourself as best you can as we each would find our own way
From the best to the worst from the last to the first of the

Lives and loves, and friends there in that
Lives and loves, and friends there in that
Lives and loves, and friends there in that small town

The girl left behind
Her image a whisper
Melting it's way back into my memory
You know she was my muse
You know she lit my fuse
And I took off, and I never once looked back
And even now
I don't know how I
Ever managed to get this far along without her
Her memories come back to me, her smile her style our history
Through good times and bad times
We helped each other make our way along
And so it goes between the poetry and prose
Our lives are like some kind of living song
And even though we're not together now
I've come to understand you've been with me all along
Through the laughing and the tears
And the mysteries and the cheers and the

Lives and loves, and friends there in that
Lives and loves, and friends there in that
Lives and loves, and friends there in that small town

Small town, small town, small town
