Give Me Back My Hometown Lyrics

Damn I used to loved this view, sit here and drink a few
Main street and the high school lit up on a Friday night
Down there it’s another touchdown, man this years team is stout
I can hear em going crazy, and up here so am I

Thinkin bout...

    Its about when life was once good, but there always has to be an end. He wants it back and he'll give anything to the girl who did it just to get it back.

    A girl took his hometown away from him basically, he says you can have my grandma's locket, the knife outta my grandpa's pocket, my state champion jacket, memories, and everything. Besides his hometown.

    This song tells a story of a young boy in a quiet, small town where he and his friends use to enjoy the weekends. But as drug dealers and hustlers moved into town and took over, he realized that as he began to loose everyone that was close to him and meant anything to him, that this is no longer what he wanted out of his hometown. Hence the title: Give Me Back My Hometown.
