Small Town Girl

Story Behind The Song

I have spend countless days traveling the roads. There is always that longing to get back home and get some normal back in life

On the road day after day, eating at restaurants and doing the same thing over and over. A man gets to missing that country charm and country ways that can only be provided by a small town girl

Biloxi, Charlotte, Memphis, Atlanta
The highway miles we've done
Raleigh, Jackson, Nashville, Savannah
The road keeps rollin' on

Well, there's an awful lotta things that I've been missin'
since we got out on the road
and all the tour dates, band-mates
road-crews, short-fuse
Feel like I'm gonna explode!

I need a small town girl to take me home
turn down the lights, unplug the phone
Give me good lovin', all night long
Small town girl - Take me home

Well the stops all start to look the same
no matter where we go
and the food that they server us, has funny names
not like the stuff that we get back home

There's an awful lotta things that I've been missin'
and I'm feelin' so alone
and all these city girls they don't know what it takes
to make a country boy feel at home


Ham hocks, turnip greens, corn bread in the oven
sunsets , skinny dippin' , down home lovin'
There's a whole lotta things in this world
than only can be provided by a small town girl
