​Boom Town

This song is by Russell Morris and appears on the album Retrospective (2003).

Here I sit in Myrtle City
Streets so bare and not so pretty
All alone without a dime
To buy

One small bottle is all I'm after
To take me back to all the laughter
When the town
Had a [rhyme?] too

Boom town nothing seems quite the same,
Boom town memories float like rain
Stop a while
Think and smile
Back to when
Then

Here I sit in my amazement
To see the street now
Crumbling pavement
And the bars left to dry
No wine

To quench this one man's tired thirst
To last when progress brings the worst
To your own town in your own time

Boom town nothing seems quite the same,
Boom town memories float like rain,
Stop a while
Think and smile
Back to when
Then
