lyrics

The life that we were living, sure did get us down
Got so god damn busy, couldn’t put the bottle down

The drinking didn’t do nothing, except prolong the pain
Got to feeling like water, swirling down the drain

The pattern just continued, over and over I found
And like a carousel, that shit will come back around

And boy did it ever, like waking up from a dream
Suddenly I realized, I’d come apart at the seams

Well I want to get back, to that old home town
Highway 49, bring me on down
On the dashboard it says 110
Damn thing ain’t worked right, since I don’t know when
Well I’m driving to Nevada County today
I want to get treated in a small town way

Seems it don’t mean nothing, unless it’s made by yourself
In life those are the lessons, that offer the most help

People are so different, it’s what makes us beautiful
When them differences scare you, your true colors show

You gotta turn that mirror inward, take a hard look at yourself
Is it shortcomings in your own life, make you want to hold back someone else

It’s becoming disheartening, too much to withstand
So I’m a make for them foothills, just as fast as I can

Well I want to get back, to that old home town
Highway 49, bring me on down
On the dashboard it says 110
Damn thing ain’t worked right, since I don’t know when
Well I’m driving to Nevada County today
I want to get treated in a small town way

I want to kiss my mama, want to hug my pa
Want to see my brother, I miss them all

I want to see my cousins, my aunt and uncle too
Tell them all I love them, just because I do

I want to go fishing, I can just picture it
On the bank of that river, I’m already there in my mind

Want to go to the saloon, want to howl at the moon
Want to be with my good friends, until the night ends

Want to sit on the veranda, on a sunny day
Want to go to the Yuba, want to lay in the shade

Well I want to get back, to that old home town
Highway 49, bring me on down
On the dashboard it says 110
Damn thing ain’t worked right, since I don’t know when
Well I’m driving to Nevada County today
I want to get treated in a small town way
