about

A tune dedicated to small-town Illinois.

lyrics

Rusty old town, built up on one side of the hard road.
Steel rails driven through your heart. The rails still shake,
but not like before. The train stops no more.
It just blows by with it’s freight.
Dear town, I’m so close to you even when I’m miles away.
Deep ditches and crooked streets have kept you real and true.
It’s You I see when I look at me.

Quiet main street, once bustling with blood.
Born in a cloud of coal dust. Still and grey,
the mines below; Empty and hollow echo of the day.
Dear town I’m so close to you even when I’m miles away.
Years of cracks and bruises have left you broken and blue.
It’s You I see when I look at me.

You taught me how to stand alone
with hungry space for my dreams to grow.

Sugar Leaf Tree alive in the Spring.
Lights the land in the Fall. Branches quake
like reaching hands. The trunk still stands rooted in place.
I’m so very close to You dear town even when I’m miles away.
Those who You love have kept You above the ground.
It’s You I see when I look at me. I am Home.
