they didn't much like us where we had come from

said we was ugly, and evil, and dumb

was just me and Trixie, we do as we please

drive up their lawns and steal their TVs

 

small towns are pretty when you're just passing through

they got churches with flowers and liberries too

but small towns turn nasty when they've all had enough

and when folks don't like you man small towns are rough

 

lots of mean talking, lots of bad ink

rotting in juvie we had time to think

stole ma's dixie zippo, daddy's 151

when the bright headlights hit us we stuck out our thumbs

 

light the horizon babe, what's this we see

another small town for Trixie and me

 

small towns burn faster, small towns burn good

they don't have much concrete, they're all made of wood

small towns burn faster, small towns burn bright

they warm our cold fingers, and light up the night

 

up on the hilltops, we cuddle and sigh

watching the sparks flying up in the sky

 

small towns burn faster, small towns burn good

they don't have much concrete, they're all made of wood

small towns burn faster, small towns burn bright

they warm our cold fingers and light up the night

 

 

[so, verse-verse-verse-bridge-chorus-bridge-chorus]

haha i dig the lyrics

but i can't imagine that sounding good unless Johnny Cash or Chuck Berry sang it....GOOD LUCK!!!

 

 

Actually, I could imagine The Killers doing a great version of this - for the video you could play it over scenes of Juliette Lewis and Woody Harrelson from "Natural Born Killers".

 

Anyway, good song.
