Lyrics

I was born in a small town, Momma was a farmers wife. We knew everyone for miles around, We lived here all our lives. It never even entered their minds, I might not wanna stay. But I'm young, I still got time: I got to get away. And there's one stop-light blinking on and off. Everyone knows where their neighbours are. They roll up the streets when the sun goes down. I'm a midnight girl in a sunset town. I'm a midnight girl in a sunset town. Seen places on the TV, Where they stay up all night long. Around here, it's early to bed, An' they rise before the dawn. They say the old ways are still the best, I cannot deny it, But I can't get no rest, 'Cos it's just too quiet. And there's one stop-light blinking on and off, Everyone knows where their neighbours are. They roll up the streets when the sun goes down. I'm a midnight girl in a sunset town. I'm a midnight girl in a sunset town. Now, I lay me down to sleep, Pray the lord my soul to keep. If I should die before the world turns round, Lord, don't leave me in this one horse town. (Lord don't leave me in this one horse town.) Lord, don't leave me in this one horse town. (Lord don't leave me in this one horse town.)

Well, there's one stop-light blinking on and off. Everyone knows where their neighbours are. They roll up the streets when the sun goes down. I'm a midnight girl in a sunset town. I'm a midnight girl in a sunset town. There's one stop-light blinking on and off. Everyone knows where their neighbours are. They roll up the streets when the sun goes down. I'm a midnight girl in a sunset town. I'm a midnight girl in a sunset town. I'm a midnight girl in a sunset town.
