That’s Not My Hometown

 

The Good Old Days Of The Moon Lit Drive-In..Conyers, GA - Drive-In ...

Used to go to the drive-in in my dad’s old truck

Watching from the bed I would press my luck

Hoping to steal a kiss or get to second base

Have to get you home before it got too late

I hear that drive-in’s long been closed

And I’m here stirring up old ghosts

And I wonder what else has changed

And I wonder if anything I remember remains

Then I saw on the news the people gathered in the streets

I close my eyes and bow my head in defeat

As I watch them tear that statue down

And I think that’s not my hometown

Yeah, I remember when that town was full of love

And how before we ate we’d thank God above

And now I watch them burning those buildings down

And I think that’s not my hometown

UPDATE: Police say protesters entered apartment building during ...

It’s been a minute since I went to visit

Wonder if you’re still living in it

It seems like yesterday in my memory

If I never left would there be you and me

Going to church in my Sunday best

And that time I can’t forget

When we drove out to lovers lane

Our first time in the back of my mustang

Man, those are good memories

Man, we used to run those streets

Those same streets now that I see on the news

They say there’s a side and you have to choose

And I watch them tear that statue down

And I think that’s not my hometown

Yeah, I remember when that town was full of love

And before we ate we thanked God above

And I watch them burning those buildings down

And I think that’s not my hometown

George Floyd's death: Minneapolis police chief 'absolutely sorry ...

I can’t believe my own eyes

This has to be some kind of lie

I fall to my knees and start to cry

I can’t believe my own eyes

I watch them tear that statue down

And I think that’s not my hometown

And I watch them burning those buildings down

And I think that’s not my hometown

And I think that can’t be my hometown
