LyricsEdit

The people came here from parts unknown Sleepin' in their cars 'cause they didn't have homes Thought this place was the promised land If you could roughneck, we could use a good man Come on boy let me show you around You could make a lot of money here Livin' in a boomtown

We'll some build bars and big hotels Downshift drive and the people live well High on the hog and wild on the range Pocket full of cash instead of chump change This place kicks when the sun goes down Ain't life great when you're livin' in a boomtown

See oil was the blood that flowed through the soul To keep a man workin' when it's forty below Relent to the devil in the cold cold ground Trying to make a dollar here livin' in a boomtown

Six short years the oil fields went Rigs came down and the money got spent And the wisemen saved for a rainy day The fools packed up and moved away The hotels closed and the bars shut down And it got real quite livin' in a boomtown

See oil was the blood that flowed through the soul To keep a man workin' when it's forty below Relent to the devil in the cold cold ground Trying to make a dollar here livin' in a boomtown

Now the cafe's filled with people tellin' lies Trying to figure out how the town went dry You can buy a house a dime on the dollar Need a good home just give me a holler I can move you in with no money down Still tryin' to make a dollar here livin' in a boomtown

Livin' in a boomtown Livin' in a boomtown
