Small town people with their small town minds

                                                                                 Gm    Cm

Stories full of gossip filled with small town crimes I owe I owe


Your family's been living there for centuries

                                                                            Gm   Cm

And childhood friends become your enemies I owe I owe



You take care of what your future brings

                                                                                      Gm     Cm

Or you'll never know which way your fate may swing I owe I owe



He was waiting in the lobby he was so pristine

                                                                                    Gm  Cm

You could say he's gorgeous he's a man of means I owe I owe



Give me fifty dollars for the hotel room

                                                                                              Gm  Cm

With views that overlook the garden that is now in bloom I owe I owe


So I can take it down the road to the Deli-Man

                                                                    Gm    Cm  

I owe him 50 dollars for that leg of lamb I owe I owe


The deli-man was happy with a smiling face

                                                                                        Gm Cm

And standing at the corner, she was dressed in lace I owe I owe


Handing her the money, which was overdue

                                                                                              Gm    Cm 

He thanked her for the credit and hoped to see her soon I owe I owe
