James Barker Band – Slow Down Town Lyrics

Slow Down Town By James Barker Band

This turn shuts down ’round 10 PM
Red lights start flashing, Main Street’s dead
It’s 35 mile an hour, ’til you pass the water tower
From up there you can see the interstate
When those stars came out man, so did we
Walmart parking lot’s where we’d meet
Under an indigo sky
Same girls, same guys
That’s your whole damn world, until it ain’t

We owned it, we drove it
Wide open like we stole it
Yeah, we wore those Goodyears out
From midnight ’til sunrise
We were high on that firelight
No blue lights for miles around
We grew up fast in that slow down town
In that slow down town
First times and all-nighters out, I lost count
We grew up fast in that slow down town

I could drive those side roads in my sleep
Out on a limb, jumped in down by that creek
I might’ve done a couple don’ts
A little more Jack and Coke
I broke a few hearts and I had mine broke

Yeah, we owned it, we drove it
Wide open like we stole it
Yeah, we wore those Goodyears out
From midnight ’til sunrise
We were high on that firelight
No blue lights for miles around
We grew up fast in that slow down town
In that slow down town
First times and all-nighters out, I lost count
We grew up fast in that slow down town

We owned it, we drove it
Wide open like we stole it
Yeah, we wore those Goodyears out
From midnight ’til sunrise
We were high on that firelight
No blue lights for miles around
We grew up fast in that slow down town
In that slow down town
First times and all-nighters out, I lost count
We grew up fast in that slow down town

We grew up fast in that slow down town
We grew up fast in that slow down town
