Hometown

I had a dusty box of trophies in the attic
Till that attic took a trip to "kingdom come"
I guess that storm had sent it flying back to high school
And in the rubble said they'd only found the one.

Mom said she never had the room to keep 'em
Said they always took up way too dang much space
But when I saw her safe and sound, dad and sister by her side
I'd have given her a trophy for that face.

I can think of better things to put my hometown on the map
Than to have it blown clear off it Sunday night
But if I know her like I know I do,
She ain't goin' down without a fight.

Cause here in my hometown
It's just like your hometown
We've got sisters, we've got brothers,
Memories of one another we hold dear

Here in my hometown
The one like your hometown
Sure there might be a little less of it
We might have a bigger mess of it
But all we really need is all still here

Here in our hometown

I know each girl dreams of being princess
To wear that dress and walk daddy down the aisle
Instead they searched through what was left of their old kitchen
And pulled that veil from underneath the pile

Three stories made a heap upon their shoulders
Must have felt like this whole world came crashing in
But they took it step by step, found a Laundromat and then
Made that dress all sparkling white again

I can think of better things to put my hometown on the map
Than to have it blown clear off it Sunday night
But if I know folks like I know folks in my town
They're gonna be alright

Cause here in my hometown
It's just like your hometown
We've got fathers, we've got mothers,
Memories of one another we hold dear

Here in my hometown
The one like your hometown
Sure there might be a little less of it
We might have a bigger mess of it
But all we really need is all still here

Mother Nature ain't around to answer questions
But what she tore down, we're building right back up
When you've got everything to gain,
Well then what's a little rain
Gonna do to folks that don't know when to stop…

Here in my hometown
It's just like your hometown
We ain't got a lot of things,
But we've got memories that we hold dear

Here in my hometown
It's just like your hometown
Sure there might be a bigger mess of it
We might have a little less of it
But all we really need is all still here

Yeah here in my hometown…
In our home town…
