      Mary Chapin Carpenter - I Am a Town Música y Letra

      I'm a town in Carolina, I'm a detour on a ride 
      For aphone call and a soda, I'm a blur from the driver's side 
      I'm the last gas for an hour if you're going twenty-five 
      I am Texaco and tobacco, I am dust you leave behind
      
      I am peaches in September, and corn from a roadside stall 
      I'm the language of the natives, I'm a cadence and a drawl 
      I'm the pines behind the graveyard, and the cool beneath their shade, where the boys have left their beer cans 
      I am weeds between the graves.
      
      My porches sag and lean with old black men and children 
      Their sleep is filled with dreams, I never can fulfill them 
      I am a town.
      
      I am a church beside the highway where the ditches never drain 
      I'm a Baptist like my daddy, and Jesus knows my name 
      I am memory and stillness, I am lonely in old age; I am not your destination 
      I am clinging to my ways 
      I am a town.
      
      I'm a town in Carolina, I am billboards in the fields 
      I'm an old truck up on cinder blocks, missing all my wheels 
      I am Pabst Blue Ribbon, American, and "Southern Serves the South" 
      I am tucked behind the Jaycees sign, on the rural route 
      I am a town 
      I am a town 
      I am a town 
      Southbound.
