Main street U.S.A boarded up and dry
Knowin' what once was here just makes me want to cry
Used to be the favorite place
Now what remains are memories even time cannot erase
Old man Johnson's store, where we grew up too fast
All that remains today are echoes from the past
Used to be a boomin' town
All that's left is either broken up or broken down
Singing, oh ah, oh ah, oh ah, oh
Where we used to belong
There ain't nobody home
Said, oh ah, oh ah, oh ah, oh
You can knock all you want
But, ain't nobody home
Packed up, moved away, runnin' from the past
Leaving behind the dusty dreams and broken glass
Used to be a busy town
Now, everybody passes through, but they don't stick around

(Chorus)
Was a newsstand on the corner
Right next to the barber shop
And down the street there
That's where all the kids would stop
And they would tease the neighbor's bulldog
Laugh and run away
Now, there's no one left who knows the truth in what you say

(Chorus)

(Final Chorus)
