  • Lyrics: When I was a boy My Mama worked hard My Daddy worked the grave shift down In the ship yard, oh In this company town When I went to school, I sat in the back Was there that I made my plan of attack To get out of this town Out of this Company town Company town Company town, boy But I got in trouble with a girl from school So we both got jobs and worked like mules In this company town In this company town Oh I learned some lessons, though they might’ve come slow Making a living and making a life’s Not the same you know Company town Company town, boy Company town Company town, boy I did my best to love her But it never did take So I dug right in for my kid’s sake In this company town In this company town We went to church And I drove them to school Everybody knows, you live by the rules In this company town In this company town Oh I learned some lessons, though they might’ve come slow Making a living and making a life’s Not the same you know Company town Company town, boy Company town Company town, boy
