The paper says the town is growing
It's already overflowing
Out on 29 the woods
are giving way to neighborhoods
But for me this town is haunted
Twenty times a day I'm taunted
by the sight of someone who
is never quite enough like you

[Chorus] I'm living in a ghost town
Everywhere I go I see
a ghost of you and a ghost of me
So I'm gonna get on the road and drive
with no map to guide me
It don't matter where I go
just as long as it's away
And if I find a place
that seems like it can hide me
from the bitter winds of memory
that's where I'll stay

I'll find a place you've never been
where you got no friends or kin
where there are no radios
and redbud never grows

‘Cause I can live for half a year
on what I've saved and what I fear
Look down the lonely years
I've gotta get away from here
