Lyrics

So many people want to leave
And are quick to say goodbye
They think this little town is where
The past refused to die

They get sick of the gossip
They get tired of the drama
Of small town politics and
Being considered common

It’s so funny because so many come back

But I like being where
People know who I am
And hard work means something
And your neighbors give a damn.
Where your friends have your back
Even when they know you’re wrong
That’s what makes us
Hometown strong
We’re hometown strong

Some are so quick to leave
To chase big city lights
But find that sirens instead of crickets
Just makes for sleepless nights

I don’t understand why
You wouldn’t stick around
Where your friends will stand beside you
When you put your loved ones in the ground

They don’t know what they’re missin’

But I like being where People know who I am
And hard work means something
And your neighbors give a damn.
Where your friends have your back
Even when they know you’re wrong
That’s what makes us
Hometown strong
We’re hometown strong

When it’s time for graduation,
Your Mama’s worried you’ll move away
In church on Sunday morning’
She’s prayin’ that you’ll stay

You might follow concrete dreams
But when they start to lose their charms
Know that you can always come back
To your home with open arms.

Trust me, it’s worth it

‘Cuz I like being where People know who I am
And hard work means something
And your neighbors give a damn
Where your friends have your back
Even when they know you’re wrong
That’s what makes us
Hometown strong

They always come back to hometown strong
