"Heartbreak Town" lyrics - DIXIE CHICKS

"Heartbreak Town"

Hugged your friends
Kissed your mamma goodbye
Baby in your arms and a tear in your eye
Twelve hundred miles and you never asked why from me

Me and the baby and you side by side
We all knew we was in for a long hard ride
Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide it seemed

We honked the horn when we crossed the state line
Woke up the baby and she started to cry
She must've known what we were going to find

This ain't nothin' but a Heartbreak Town
Square people in a world that's round
And they watch you dancin'
Without the sound
It ain't nothin' no nothin' oh...
You take your number and you stand in line
And they watch to see how high you're gonna climb
Pat on the back and better luck next time
It ain't nothin' no it ain't nothin but a Heartbreak Town

Stardust, well it's a funny thing
It can make you cuss
It can make you sing
And the need to touch it gets hard to explain some days

I've seen 'em rise
I've seen 'em fall
Some get nothin'
And Lord some get it all
Some just run
While others crawl away

Hold my hand baby don't let go
I've got some front money
And I've got a next show
And I'm gonna need you
Down this yellow brick road


Heartbreak town...
