Iris DeMent - Our Town Lyrics

  • CHORUS: And ya know the sun's setin' fast
  • And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts
  • Go on now and kiss it goodbye
  • But hold on to your lover 'cause your heart's bound to die
  • Go on now and say goodbye to our town, to our town
  • Can't you see the sun's settin' down on our town, on our town
  • Goodnight
  • Up the street beside that red neon light
  • That's where I met my baby on one hot summer night
  • He was the tender and I ordered the beer
  • It's been forty years and I'm still sittin' here
  • It's here I had my babies and I had my first kiss
  • I've walked down Main Street in the cold morning mist
  • Over there is where I bought my first car
  • It turned over once but then it never went far
  • I've buried my Mama and I've buried my Pa
  • They sleep up the street beside that pretty brick wall
  • I bring 'em flowers about everyday
  • But I just gotta cry when I think what they'd say
  • If they could see how the sun's setting fast...
  • Now I sit on the porch and watch the lightnin' bugs fly
  • But I can't see too good, I got tears in my eyes
  • I'm leavin' tomorrow but I don't wanna go
  • I love you, my town, you'll always live in my soul
  • But I can see the sun's seting fast
  • And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts
  • Go on, I gotta kiss you goodbye
  • But I'll hold on to my lover 'cause my heart's 'bout to die
  • Go on now and say goodbye to my town, to my town
  • I can see the sun has gone down on my town, on my town
  • Goodnight, Goodnight
