Right downtown next to the Kroger store
Is where my hardware store once stood
They're both gone now
Along with the rest of downtown
All the windows are boarded over with wood

We survived the arrival of the K-mart
And the Pamida that had come before
But not even they had the strength
To withstand the attack of that
Fucking Walmart store

Sam Walton promised prosperity and every-day low prices
When he brought his store to town
He only delivered unemployment
As one by one all the other stores shut down

Soon I was forced to swallow my pride
And take the only job I could score
For 28 hours a week at minimum wage
I'm the greeter out at
The Walmart store

Sam Walton has singlehandedly sounded the deathbell
For small towns across America
I learned my lesson and I'm here to tell you:
You can't trust a man from Arkansas No, you can't trust a man from Arkansas
Don't trust any man from Arkansas!!
