I can’t make a living living here

I can’t make a living living here
It’s time I shifted gears
Another factory has shut down
I can’t make a living living here

No one comes in to the bar
I can’t afford to pay the band
I’m not living hand to mouth
I’m living mouth to hand

I can’t make a living living here
Most folks are on the move
More signs go up every day
I can’t make a living living here

Windows boarded, stores all closed
There’s no where here to shop
It don’t matter anyway
There’s no one left to shop

I can’t make a living living  here
It’s time I shifted gears
Another factory has shut down
I can’t make a living living here

I gave the town just one more chance
I’ve done it fourteen times
I guess those leaving got it right
The next for sale sign’s mine

I can’t make a living living here
It’s time that I changed gears
Some one else can sell their beer
I can’t make a living living here
