Stoney Larue — Downtown lyrics

Five years old with a smile on my face
Momma's in the kitchen
Daddy's playin' bass downtown
Downtown

Dad walks in says Sherry my girl, we need to talk
Remember that night with John boy
Well you know I saw it all and I was scared for the first time

Well then one thing led to another and left my mom down on the floor
Dad said once you had everything but you chose to be a whore
So we're gone, gone to the next town
Oh my friends we were gone just like that

Well it's been seventeen years since I've seen my mom
Five years for my dad and I hear he's tryin' to get a job downtown yet again

If it weren't for my grandad I wouldn't be standin here today
All the years he spent pushin me sayin boy go on and do your thing downtown
Make me proud son
Oh and here I am I'm playin downtown

Five years old with a smile on my face
Momma's in the kitchen
Daddy's playin' bass downtown
