Lyrics:

Town That Time Forgot


There's a dream I've been having since I was a child
About a place out there somewhere, where innocence lies
Life there is still simple and the doors never locked
In the town that time forgot, in the town that time forgot.

There are white picket fences and unbusy streets
Yards filled with bicycles and the wind-blown sheets
neighbours are neighbours, on Sunday work stops
in the town that time forgot, in the town that time forgot

In the town that time forgot
the kids all hang out at the old soda shop
they got the Everlys playing on the corner jukebox
in the town that time forgot, in the town that time forgot

There the lean years are over and the world is at peace
nobody's worried about sons overseas
Moms hold their children, every man holds a job
in the town that time forgot, in the town that time forgot

In the town that time forgot
the kids all hang out at the old soda shop
and they're wearing their Bryle cream and their best Bobby Socks
in the town that time forgot, in the town that time forgot

Where a dollar and the dirt roads stretch for miles
and the stars have yet to fall from the sky

There's a triple feature playing just down the road
Jailhouse Rock, Love Me Tender, King Creole
and in that old movie house tonight you won't find a spot
in the town that time forgot, in the town that time forgot
in the town that time forgot
