One Horse Town (Elton John)

Music by Elton John and James Newton-Howard Lyrics by Bernie Taupin Saw a Cadillac for the first time yesterday I'd always seen horses, buggies, bales of hay `Cause progress here don't move with modern times There's nothing to steal So there's not a great deal of crime It sure is hell living in a one horse town There's half a mile of Alabama mud bed ground Nothing much doing of an afternoon Unless you're sitting in a rocking chair just picking a tune And they ain't too well acquainted with the stars and stripes But if you want to hear Susanna then they'll pick all night They'll pick all night `Cause it's no dice living in a one horse town Laid back, as my old coon hound And I just can't wait to get out of this one horse town There's nothing to steal `cause there's simply nothing much around Sure is hell living in this one horse town There's half a mile of Alabama mud bed ground And I just can't wait to grow out of this one horse town There's nothing to steal `cause there's nothing much around
