Our Town


        D            A            D 
        Long ago, but not so very long ago 
        G             A             D 
        The world was different, oh yes it was 
        D                       A                 Bm 
        You settled down and you built a town and made it there 
        And you watched it grow 
                 G      A 
        It was  your town        

        D             A                    Bm 
        Time goes by, time brings changes, you change, too 
        G                     A                 D 
        Nothing comes that you can't handle, so on you go 
        D            A           Bm          Am    G 
        Never see it coming, the world caves in on you 
           G    A 
        On your town 
        G               A 
        Nothing you can do. 

        D                 G             D 
        Main street isn't main street anymore 
        D                     G                A 
        Lights don't shine as brightly as they shone before 
        Bm              Am                    G Gm 
        Tell the truth, lights don't shine at all        
          G      A      D 
        In our town      

        D                 A 
        Sun comes up each morning 
        Just like it's always done 
        G             A              D 
        Get up, go to work, start the day, 
        D           A              Bm     Am    G 
        Open up for business that's never gonna come 
               Em          A    Em             A 
        As the world rolls by a million miles away 

        D                 G             D 
        Main street isn't main street anymore 
        D               G                 A 
        No one seems to need us like they did before 
        Bm                  Am             G   Gm 
        It's hard to find a reason left to stay          
                 G   A 
        But it's our town 
        G         A 
        Love it anyway 
        G    Bm   A             D 
        Come what may, it's our town
