Lyrics to This Old Town This old town should have burned down in 1929That's when we stood in linewaiting for our soup while swallowing our prideThis old town should have burned down in 1931when the rain refused to comeAir filled up our belliesDust filled up our lungsand we thought our time had comeBut this old town was built by handin the dustbowl of the motherlandThere must be rock beneath this sandI'll be damned - this town still standsThis old town should have burned down in 1944when the last man went to warThey came back differentif they came back at allThis old town should have burned down in 1956That's when the twister hitand all our hopes lay buried beneath the boards and bricksand we almost called it bricksBut this old town was built by handin the dsutbowl of the motherlandThere must be rock beneath this sandI'll be damned - this town still standsSomewhere in the distancethe city lights do shineSidewalks gleam with neon dreamsthat call from time to timeWhen my children's children ask mewhy I didn't goI'll say - The heart of any townis the people that you've knownand they always call you homeThis old town was built by handin the dustbowl of the motherlandThere is be rock beneath the sandI'll be damned - this town still stands
