In The Far Away Town That Is Known As Somewhere

Many kilometers off of the highway that leads to elsewhere
Is the far away town that is known as Somewhere
Not known as a tourist attraction or worthy of note
As from anywhere it does seem far too remote
The town anyone never does celebrate
It has never been home to a celebrity or a sporting great
Too far from the nearest big town and too far inland from the sea
It has never been famous for anything or never will be
You mention Somewhere to anyone and to you they will say
Never been to there from anywhere too far away
The narrow roadway to Somewhere the tourists ignore
As they drive on the highway to the ocean shore
I cannot ever recall meeting anyone from Somewhere
The far away town in the remote lands out there.
