she left her home of 17 years
last time she saw her in the checkout line
on the back porch in tears
it's hard to leave your woman behind
in the smallest of the smallest towns
this town won't need you when you're gone
this town won't love you
in Jasper in Margaretsville in Cullman Alabama
in Mechanic Falls in Whately Mass in La Mesilla
in a town of 1975 in a town of two thousand six sixteen
this town will need you when you're gone
this town will fall in love with you
this home won't know you when you come back
your home won't even recognize you
