"New Town" as written by and Vic Chesnutt....
New town reeks of lumber
New town beat the crowds
New town kittens discover
That the birds scrape the ground
And even the loneliest old ladies get social calls
Where they dine and talk about their savior
And the grassroots effort to incorporate
Elects a smiling mayor
New town Americana
New town rookie police
New town industries are wanted for the local employees
And a little bitty baby draws a nice clean breath
From over his beaming Momma's shoulder
He's staring at the worldly wonders
That stretch just as far as he can see
But he'll stop staring when he's older
Oh, new town
New town
New town
And even the loneliest old ladies get social calls
Where they dine and talk about their savior
And the grassroots effort to incorporate
Elects a smiling mayor
New town
New town
New town ...
