Greg Brown

Tom: G
Intro G 

verse 1 
                  C                 G 
Now, the railroad came generations ago 
             D7                        G 
And the town grew up, as the crops did grow 
                   C                       G 
And the crops grew well, and the town did, too 
              D7                          G 
They say it's dying now and there ain't a thing we can do 
 
C G I don't have to read the news or hear it on the radio D7 G I see it in the faces of everyone I know C G The cost goes up, what we made comes down D7 G What's gonna happen to our little town?
Interlude C G D7 G C G verse 2 C G The summer's full of thunder, the kids run and play D7 G Mama got a new wrinkle, Papa ain't got much to say C G Rust grows along the railroad track D7 G The young folks leave, they don't come back
C G And I don't have to read the news or hear it on the radio D7 G I see it in the faces of everyone I know C G The boards go up, the signs come down D7 G And what's gonna happen to our little town?
Interlude C G D7 G C G verse 3 C G Tom lost his farm, and we lost Tom D7 G He left in the night, I don't know where he's gone C G What he'd lost, he just couldn't face D7 G What we're losing, it can't be replaced
C G And I don't have to read the news or hear it on the radio D7 G I see it in the faces of everyone I know C G The reason we're here, is the farms around D7 G So what's gonna happen to our little town?
Interlude C G D7 G C G verse 4 C G We've seen hard times many times before D7 G Maybe this whole thing is just one more C G It never was perfect, maybe no one's to blame D7 G To see it die like this, it's a goddamn shame
C G And I don't have to read the news or hear it on the radio D7 G I see it in the faces of everyone I know C G The sun comes up, the sun goes down D7 G But what's gonna happen to our little town?
