LITTLE BIG TOWN

Small town turning into
A little city pretty fast
Folks there, they don't like it much
And hope it isn't gonna last
But I think they understand there's no turning back
Things are changing a little fast now
In a little big town

They're selling t-shirts on Main Street
There's a tour bus now
Mercedes and Porsches
In a four-wheel town
Down at the outlet store
The farmer's kids hang around
Things are changing a little fast now
In a little big town

Old man watching all the traffic
Just shaking his head, he said:
"They tore down the mill to build
A hotel instead.
I caught a kid who was taking aim
At a swan by the river bend.
Now ain't that just like shooting an angel?"

People wonder what happened
To the town they used to know
They're buying blue jeans at Wal-Mart
Not the general store
Some things seem like a bargain
But cost a whole lot more
Things are changing a little fast now
In a little big town

Some things seems like a bargain
But cost a whole lot more
Things are changing a little fast now
In a little big town
