"Buy This Town" as written by and Lori Mckenna....
If I could buy this town - I’d keep it small and rough
Full of 3rd shift dreamers - And high school love

I’d keep the Church of Christ - And the bowling alley open
Where the bud light signs - Crackle while they’re glowing
If I could buy this town

If I could buy one night - I wouldn’t buy the one you’d think
I’d buy the one when my eyes teared up by the light above the kitchen sink

And you held me tight - and you begged me not to cry
If I could buy the sweetness of one kiss - that’s the one I’d buy
If I could buy one night

All the money in the world couldn’t buy a drop of real love could it?
And it really shouldn’t - should it
If I could buy the stars - I’d polish them so bright

If I could buy your pain - first I’d buy the great big sea
I’d put that pain inside a box - and bury it so deep

If I could I’d buy you back - the years you worked yourself to death
I would buy and waste your suffering - until there wasn’t any left
If I could buy your pain

All the money in the world couldn’t buy a drop of real love could it?
And it really shouldn’t - should it
But I’d gladly give you every piece of my whole heart

If I could buy this town - I keep the Friday night bleachers
Full of kids falling in love - and unlikely believers

And the firefighters are there - cuz their kid’s in the game
And we don’t win too often - but that ain’t why we came
If I could buy this town
