Why I Can't Leave

Verse 1

You never did care too much for this two lane town, did you babe?
You've been talking 'bout getting out, chasing them dreams down since 7th grade
And I can't blame you
For the way God made you
You need more skyline in a water tower with your name on it
And I need more Chevrolet with a little bit of red dirt clay on it
And that's just you and that's just me
That's just the way it's gotta be

Chorus

Yeah the Main Street's slow like they all tracked the tyres
Little rough around the edges like that rusty barbed wire
Baby I know that ain't your speed
That’s why you can't stay
That’s why I can't leave
You need more stations on your radio
Them kind of places where the corn don't grow
Baby I love you but we both got dreams
That’s why you can't stay
That’s why I can't leave

Verse 2

We had a good run under that Southern sun, didn't we?
And you can call me up and I fill you in if you're missing this town and me
I need a front porch view
But you need a balcony
And no matter what you know where I'll be

Chorus

Where the Main Street's slow like they all tracked the tyres
Little rough around the edges like that rusty barbed wire
Baby I know that ain't your speed
That’s why you can't stay
That’s why I can't leave
You need more stations on your radio
Them kind of places where the corn don't grow
Baby I love you but we both got dreams
That’s why you can't stay
That’s why I can't leave

Oh oh oh
Yeah that's why I can't leave

Chorus

Yeah the Main Street's slow like they all tracked the tyres
Little rough around the edges like that rusty barbed wire
Baby I know that ain't your speed
That’s why your dad is out there loading up your Jeep
Yeah them Friday night lights ain't your kinda shine
Wish I could but I can't say that ain't mine
Little town like this, what you get is what you see
That's why you can't stay
That's why I can't leave
No I can't leave
