The Towns that We Play In

we earned our stripes
playing out on the road
in towns you won’t find on the map
we play whatever
the crowd wants to hear
and one time we even played taps

yeah taps…that’s right
one time we even played taps

played a bar last night
real funky place
the backroom was also the jail
you got drunk on one side
then they’d lock you up
and you could pay the bartender your bail

yep…you could pay the bartender your bail

The towns that we play in
Aren’t really that big
What most call a forest
The band calls a twig
we play country music
we can knock off a jig
but to call us that famous
is like kissing a pig

we’ve got two pickups
an suv too
and a minivan rusted to bits
we play rock paper scissors
to see who drives where
then we pack up and hope it all fits

yep…most nights we hope it all fits

we play behind wire
in some places we go
it stops the bottle from hitting the drums
we asked the bartender
if he thought we should leave
he said you do….next they’ll all pull out their guns

yep…everyone there all had guns

The towns that we play in
Aren’t really that big
What most call a forest
The band calls a twig
we play country music
we can knock off a jig
but to call us that famous
is like kissing a pig
