[VERSE 1]

Me and all my friends down by the river
Fourteen running through the streets
Living on a prayer in a teenage wasteland
Trying not to bust at the seams

We were young, so low tryn’a get high
Praying up above that our dreams never die
Putting that Jeep into four-wheel drive
Shining like stars in the sky

[PRE Chorus]

We grew up in this town
We screwed up in this town
Had each other’s backs when we got off track
Man life moves fast

[Chorus]

In this town baby I can never get away
I don’t wanna leave but you know I can’t stay
There’s something ‘bout these hills and those country roads
That makes me feel at home in this town

We laughed, we cried, we stayed out all night
We did everything wrong, but we turned out alright
Baby it’s bittersweet
You can take me out of this town
But you can’t take this Town out of me

[VERSE 2]

Well some of us move on, some get locked up
And some don’t make it out
I think about those days when we’d just meet up at Adam’s house and just ride around

We were so young, so lost, tryna get by
Couldn’t tell us nothing we had too much pride
Spending our weekends working part time
We were just tryna survive

[PRE Chorus]

Cuz we were raised in this town
Learned how to pray in this town
Seen my friends die, seen mommas cry, still asking why

[Chorus]

In this town baby I can never get away
I don’t wanna leave but you know I can’t stay
There’s something ‘bout these hills and those country roads
That makes me feel at home in this town

We laughed, we cried, we stayed out all night
We did everything wrong, but we turned out alright
Baby it’s bittersweet
You can take me out of this town
But you can’t take this Town out of me

[BRIDGE]

Cuz we grew up in this town
We screwed up in this town
I’ll remember us the way it was
It’s always love

[Chorus]

In this town baby I can never get away
I don’t wanna leave but you know I can’t stay
There’s something ‘bout these hills and those country roads
That makes me feel at home in this town

We laughed, we cried, we stayed out all night
We did everything wrong, but we turned out alright
Baby it’s bittersweet
You can take me out of this town
But you can’t take this Town out of me
