Hometown Boy

This song is by Restless Heart and appears on the album Matters Of The Heart (1994).

There's an old dirt road
I've been traveling down for years
And I passed by my old man
Sitting up on his John Deere
And just around the bend
She'd be waiting on the porch
It never seemed that far
Between my house and hers

I'm a hometown boy (hometown boy)
Got a small town girl (small town girl)
And there's an old harvest moon
Looking down on our world
The smell of sweet magnolia
And the southern stars are still the favorite toys
Of a small town girl
And a hometown boy

There's a football field
And the touchdown pass I missed
And that old schoolyard
Where she gave me my first kiss
If I'd have caught that ball
It would have won the game
But she stood there on the sidelines
And cheered me just the same

I'm a hometown boy (hometown boy)
Got a small town girl (small town girl)
And there's an old harvest moon
Looking down on our world
Walking by the river
And a slow sunset are things we both enjoy
Just a small town girl
And a hometown boy

I can't drive a mile
That I don't see someone wave
It always makes me smile
'Cause everybody knows my name

I'm a hometown boy (hometown boy)
Got a small town girl (small town girl)
And there's an old harvest moon
Looking down on our world
A country home family
Raising kids to be the pride and joy
Of a small town girl
And a hometown boy
Hometown boy
