"One Horse Town" as written by and David Frishberg....

Words and Music by Dave Frishberg

It's a one horse town
It's a one horse way of life that I've been leading
It's a one horse town
No one in this town can give me what I'm needing

One one-chair barber shop
One local train that doesn't stop
One two-lane road, one motorcycle cop

This one horse town
Really brings me down
Still I hang around and chew the fat
With Ralph and Nat
The same old group
Those two-bit grinds
With their one-track minds
They'll wake up one day and find
I fin'lly flew the coop
I can't settle down
In this crummy one horse town

There's a roadside stand
You can go in back and feed the one-arm bandit
There's a one-man band
He can play your fav'rite song if you can stand it

Just give me one good year
I guarantee I'll disappear
I'll make my way to anywhere but here
