This old town should've burned down in 1929
Waiting for our soup

When the rain refused to come
And we thought our time had come
This old town was built by hand
There must be rock beneath this sand

When the last men went to war
If they came back at all
This old town should've burned down in 1956
And all our hopes were buried
And we almost called it quits
This old town was built by hand
There must be rock beneath this sand

The city lights do shine
That call from time to time
When my children's children
They say the heart of any town
They'll always call you home
This old town was built by hand
There must be rock beneath this sand
