ANYTOWN U.S. OF A
©2006 by Donny Simonds

VERSE I
Well, that Greyhound bus don’t stop by here anymore
They stole the rubber off the rims and they parked it at the general store
They stole his peace of mind in a real short time
Hauled it off in a pick-up truck
It’s not just happening here, man
It’s Anytown, U. S. of A

VERSE I I
I had a girl said she loved me and I’m sure a man’s told you the same
With her deceit and lies and the rules changing every day
They take your peace of mind in a real short time
Give you back that golden ring
It’s not just happening here, man
It’s Anytown, U. S. of A

INSTRUMENTAL CHORUS

VERSE I II
If you got problems with your families break ‘em out of the closet
And put your left foot forward and start talking about it
You’re wasting precious time and your peace of mind
Write a letter and send it off
It’s not just happening here, man
It’s Anytown, U. S. of A

VERSE I V
There’s a lady standing tall and she’s watching that big old’ bay
She’s got a head full of thorns and a lantern shining the way
She gives you peace of mind in a real short time
You found America, you’re on your way
You’re welcome here, man
It’s Anytown, U. S. of A

I said, you’re welcome here, yeah
It’s Anytown, U. S. of A

And you’re welcome here, man
It’s Anytown, U. S. of A
