Hand-Me-Down Town

He lives in a town where everything is used
He even has to read yesterday's news
His old truck is the one his grandpa drove
Mama makes his biscuits on an old wooden stove
Livin' in a hand-me-down town
Folks wouldn't have any other way
Livin' in a hand-me-down town
Wakes up to the same ol' day
He got his brother's gal when he died in the war
That's the same ol' story you've heard before
Things get real tough livin' on this land
That's the kind of life, that makes a real man
Seen people move away, just to come back
The grass ain't any greener on other side of the tracks
