I knocked out Buster Johnson
On the playground after school
I went from being a third grade punk
To sixth grade cool
Yeah, I still hold the land-speed record
Down county road 5-0-9
Judge Taylor said he was real impressed
But wouldn't waive the fine
Yeah, I still got my picture on the bait shop wall
With a six pound small-mouth bass
I see that I'm still loved and hated on that overpass

Yeah, I got a name in this town
Some good and some bad that I'll never live down
Anywhere else I'm just a face in the crowd
But I got a name in this town
Yeah, I got a name in this town

Might have to fight my way out of Lucy's
When I show up tonight
'Round here it seems old scores
Old flames, man, they never die
Then again, it might just be a bunch of back slappin'
When I walk through that door
Hear the same old stories
That keep gettin' bigger than they were before
I packed my things and hitched my dreams
To a superstar
And if the world out there
Don't give a damn about me or this guitar
It won't matter at all

'Cause I got a name in this town
Some good and some bad that I'll never live down
Anywhere else I'm just a face in the crowd
But I got a name in this town

Yeah, I got a name in this town
Been called a few things I can't say right now
A little hard-headed and a little too proud
But I got a name in this town
Yeah, I got a name in this town
Whoa

Risk-taker, heart-breaker, trouble-maker
Man I got a name in this town

Big-dreamer, dead-ringer, not a bad singer
Yeah, I got a name in this town

S.O.B., wild and free, you know me
Man, I got a name in this town

I got a name in this town
I got a name in this town
