Capo 2nd Fret

  C        G                C
Long ago, but not so very long ago
      F           G           C
The world was different, oh, yes, it was
             G               Am
You settled down and you built a town and made it there
                     G            F    G
And you watched it grow, it was your town

 - C --  G --

  C                G
Time goes by and time brings changes
You've changed too
   F                G
Nothing comes that you can't handle
So on you go
 C                  G
You never see it coming
          Am         C      F
When the world caves in on you
F         G      F             G
On your town, nothing you can do

 C                 F               C
Main Street isn't Main Street anymore
 C                       F                G
Lights don't shine as brightly as they shone before
  Am              C                    F
Tell the truth, lights don't shine at all
F       G
In our town

 C                      G                      C
The sun comes up each morning just like it's always done
 F             G                  C
Get up, go to work and start the day
      C          G
You open up for business
        Am   C      F
That's never gonna come
         F         Am      F           G
As the world rolls by a million miles away

C                  F              C
Main Street isn't Main Street anymore
C                 F                 G
No one seems to needs us like they did before
      Am              C              F
It's hard to find a reason left to stay
          F    G
But it's our town
  F        G
Love it anyway
 F    Am   G
Come what may
It's our town
