The Shadow of This Town

In the shadow of this old town
There's a comfort that can be found
In this place I always know that I'll be safe and sound
Yeah it's easy to stick around
Get your feet planted on the ground
Yeah no matter where I am bound
I'm in the shadow of this old town

In the shadow of this town
I learned to love the Texas sky
And if I ever leave
Please take me back there when I die
All the things that I lost
And everything I found
All lie beneath the shadow of this town

Well I once thought that I would roam
Far away from where I call home
See in my mind success could only come from going alone
Yeah but now that I'm fully grown
WIth a family that's all my own
It's the only home I've known
I don't know if I will ever roam


Well sometimes I want to spread my wings
And I long to have the finer things
Well we're never gonna live like kings
Hold the world by a couple strings
Yeah I might be a bird that sings
But I wonder if I've clipped these wings
