Wasn't more than half a mile between the city limit signs
The population was cut in half, the day they shut down the mine
Only thing that hasn't changed, the way the gossip spreads
Cindy Lou's nails & hairdo's and the Guntersville Gazette

When I got home from travelin', first paper I picked up
Found the girl I thought was waitin', had waited long enough
Right beside her smilin' face, under brides to be
Said Saturday Miss Mandy Chase would be Mrs. William McGee

You never know from page to page whether you will laugh or cry
One page a baby's born, on the next an old friend died
Get advice from Gabby's corner, all of that for just a quarter
I was raised, there's three things, you never questioned what they said
Grandpa, the gospel, and the Guntersville Gazette

Two lonely concrete islands sticking above the ground
Underneath heartbreakin' headlines, Humpy's Gas & Tires burned down
Sally made the honor roll, the Cowboys finally beat the Jets
Read all about it in the Guntersville Gazette

You never know from page to page whether you will laugh or cry
One page a baby's born, on the next an old friend died
Get advice from Gabby's corner, all of that for just a quarter
I was raised, there's three things, you never questioned what they said
Grandpa, the gospel, and the Guntersville Gazette

Wise old men, a church house, a hand-cranked printin' press
Grandpa, the gospel, and the Guntersville Gazette
