If you ever want to get depressed just come to this town
Nothing to do from dinner to breakfast in this town

Four street lights and one old grocery
I ain't long to stay here no siree
I'm bound to catch the next greyhound
Leavin' this town

I've seen towns, but no town as bad as this town
It don't take you long to feel lowdown in this town
Soon the cotton's gonna open up and I'm gonna pick it
Just long enough to make enough to buy myself a ticket
I'm bound to catch the next greyhound
Leavin' this town

Here I stand on the dusty road leavin' this town
Hopin' that dog ain't got a full load leavin' this town
The state built new access for travel
They got the pavement 'n we got the gravel
That's the reason everything's dying round here
In this town

We got very little sunshine day to day in this town
The mail don't run but every other day in this town

Four street lights and one old grocery
I ain't long to stay here no siree
I'm bound to catch the next greyhound
Leavin' this town

Well we don't reap, we don't sow in this town
Things are so bad the weeds won't grow in this town

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven
This town can go the other place I'm going to heaven
I'm bound to catch the next Greyhound
Leavin' this town
