"Small Town Bringdown" as written by and Gordon Sinclair....
Been to Reno
Drives an El Camino
Can you dig that style?

Hip canteen
You always make the scene
You're a crazy child

It's a sad thing
Bourbons all around
To stop that feeling when you're living
In a small town

You're long and lean
But things don't get you down
You're a top ten kingpin in the borders
Of you're hometown

You can't get hip
You work the jobs I've quit
Can you dig that style?

Won't admit
You just don't give a shit
You're a crazy child

Can't live to die - too easy
Why stick around
Not another small town hometown bringdown

This is it
You might as well get pissed
Can you dig that style?

Make your trip
There ain't that much to miss
You're a crazy child

    General CommentGreat song. It's one of their earliest songs. I think it might have to do with the band growing up in a small town.

    General CommentThis song appeared on the first mini album they released (what us oldtimers used to call an EP). Gord Sinclair wrote this song and got in major shit from his fans in Kingston because they thought he was dissng his hometown. He must have been a smooth talker to get them to believe otherwise. thankfully Gord Downie took up most of the lyric writing duties. However, i still like this song as well as the whole EP
