Lyrics

Hard Luck Town

Small town man just tryin’ to make my way
Workin’ the mines on the iron range
The winds turned cold around 1995
Left me standin’ at the unemployment line

I always thought I’d work the iron ore
Just like my father & father before
Now I’m tryin’ to save some pride
Standin’ with my friends in the unemployment line

That’s the way it goes in this hard luck town
It chews you up, and it tears you down
That’s the way it goes in this hard luck town
It chews you up, and it tears you down

Born to run’s playin’ on the radio
I ain’t got better places to go
One last drink to ease my worried mind
Been drinkin’ since noon, now it’s closin’ time

That’s the way it goes in this hard luck town
It chews you up, and it tears you down
That’s the way it goes in this hard luck town
It chews you up, and it tears you down
That’s the way it goes in this hard luck town
For a small town boy just tryin’ to get out
