DOWN HOME

JUST OFF OF THE BEATEN PATH
A LITTLE DOT ON A STATE ROAD MAP
THAT'S WHERE I WAS BORN AND WHERE I'LL DIE
THINGS MOVE AT A SLOWER PACE
NOBODY'S IN THE RA T RACE
AND THESE DAYS THAT'S A SPECIAL WAY OF LIFE,

DOWN HOME, WHERE THEY KNOW YOU BY NAME
AND TREAT YOU LIKE FAMILY
DOWN HOME A MAN'S GOOD WORD
AND A HANDSHAKE ARE ALL YOU NEED
FOLKS KNOW IF THEY'RE FALLING ON HARD TIMES
THEY CAN FALL BACK ON
THOSE OF US RAISED UP DOWN HOME.

IN THE CORNER OF THE HARDWARE STORE
GATHERED ROUND A CHECKERBOARD
OLD MEN TELLING LIES AND CROWNING KINGS
KIDS DRIVING ROUND THE OLD TOWN SQUARE
TOPS ROLLED DOWN IN THE COOL NIGHT AIR
GO AND SEE WHAT'S SHAKING AT THE DAIRY QUEEN.

CHORUS

WHEN I WAS A BOY I COULDN'T WAIT TO LEAVE THIS PLACE
BUT NOW I WANT TO SEE MY CHILDREN RAISED

DOWN HOME, DOWN HOME.
FOLKS KNOW IF THEY'RE FALLING ON HARD TIMES
THEY CAN FALL BACK ON
THOSE OF US RAISED UP DOWN HOME.

CHORUS
