Well, I've been around
Since before the trains came through
And I've seen a lot
But the first time my heart broke in two
Was when they brought those Johnson brothers back
To their mama, with a flag

Well, I'm a small town
There's hundreds just like me
Yeah, but I'm the one
Where you have born to be
Where you learn how to ride your first bike
Up and down my street where you grew up
And couldn't wait to just get out
I'm a small town

Where everyone knows everyone
There ain't no secrets around here
Sonny there you loved me,
You had me for everything I am
Either I hold your heart, or I hold you down
I'm a small town

Just a dot there on the map
And if you blink you'll miss me
Now go ahead and laugh
But I'm where you kissed your first someone
I'm where you hit your last home-run
I'm where you laid your grandpa in the ground
Yeah, I'm a small town

Where everyone knows everyone
There ain't no secrets around here
Sonny there you loved me,
You had me for everything I am
Either I hold your heart, or I hold you down
I'm a small town

You left in a cloud of dust
Big city bound
But I never once gave up
And when you looked into that newborn angel's eyes
Then it occurred
There was only one place good enough for her

Where everyone knows everyone
There ain't no secrets around here
Sonny there you loved me,
You had me for everything I am
Either I hold your heart, or I hold you down
I'm a small town
I'm a small town
I'm a small town
I'm a small town
I'm a small town
Yeah, I'm a small town
