HOMETOWN BLUES
Steve Earle


I wish I'd never come back home

It don't feel right since I've been grown

I can't find any of my old friends hangin' 'round

Won't nothin' bring you down like your hometown

I spent some time in New Orleans

I had to live on rice and beans

I hitched through Texas when the sun was beatin' down

Won't nothin' bring you down like your hometown



CHORUS

Home is where the heart is

Ain't that what they always say

My heart lies in broken pieces

Scattered along the way



So don't think about me when I'm gone

I don't mind travelin' alone

You are the sweetest little thing I ever found

Won't nothin' bring you down like your hometown
