"Broken Town Blues" as written by and Joe Purdy....
Well Jamie could get closer if she tried
Sometimes she gets lonesome late at night
She walks the streets where good love has gone bad
She worries for the one she never had

She says, I still got some gentle in my bones
Sometimes I just need someone else to know
And I will walk until these clothes are soaking through
And take comfort in these broken town blues

Last time that I saw her we were young
She told me just how restless she'd become
She cut her hair and took on a new name
Just goes to show that some things never change

And she said, I still got some pony to my step
Sometimes I just need someone in my bed, yeah
And I will toast the dark and dance with worn out shoes
And take comfort in these broken town blues

She said, get back in this city where you belong
Come sing me some of your country boy songs
And tell me all your secrets, I'll pour you wine
And if it gets late enough, I'll tell you mine

And she said, I still got some crazy in my head
For the most part I ain't got no regrets
So I will walk this rainy city here with you
And take comfort in these broken town blues
