Lyrics

Well the news hit me like a hammer

Blew off the top of my head

I went for a walk around the block

Wound up at your door instead

With a ballpoint pen and paper

To try and write it all down

But nothing I say ever makes much sense

I think I’m going to leave this town

 

I think I’m going to leave this town in a minute

Everything here, all the people in it

It’s a rat race

I’m never going to win it

I think I’m going to leave this town

 

Well the highway musta quit calling

‘Cuz I ain’t heard it in years

Angels wait by the side of the road

The Devil whispers in my ear

And he says he’s keeping my secret

But talk sure do get around

I got trouble down deep

I can’t sleep

I think I’m going to leave this town

 

I think I’m going to leave this town in a hurry

I’ll be all right, baby don’t you worry

Somewhere between Memphis and Missouri

I think I’m going to leave this town

 

These shoes that I’ve been wearing

Wearing for a long long while

They ain’t my size, ain’t my color

Sure as hell ain’t my style

Somehow I got to keep running

While others just stand around

You know you find what’s true

Down on the avenue

I think I’m going to leave this town
