Downtown

Owen Temple

 

D                    G
Downtown’s all closed down
       A
They’ve boarded up the windows
G                    D
Just like an old ghost town
D
The storefronts are empty
G
There’s noone around
A                    D
Downtown’s all closed down


A                          G                   D
A small town in Texas by the courthouse in the square
A                                G              D
The middle of the afternoon and there’s nobody there
G
Well I shook my head and wondered
D
Where all the businesses had gone
A
There used to be everything that you’d ever need now
G
Just the bank’s still 
       D
Holdin’ on

Chorus

The old drugstore is vacant
And the café’s locked it doors
The movie marquis is falling down
There’s no more hardware stores
So I sat down on a bench
I watched a car go driving by
I wondered what had killed downtown 
And how the people could let it die

Chorus

The railroad brought the people here
Now the interstate draws them away
It moved the steady business east
And left these old buildings behind to stay
But some folks in town remember 
A time not too long ago
When a film called Casablanca played
At the town square picture show

Chorus
