Small Town, Not A Ghost Town

I live in a small town
With no rivers to sail
With no mountain to hike
No malls to choose from

I live in a small town
Where you have to make
An appointment to see a bus
An extra effort to get a flight

I live in a small town
Where people think
They know who you are
They know what you do

I live in a small town
Where there is no traffic
At night streets are empty
Most stores closed at six

I live in a small town
Where most people wear
Their best Sunday clothes
Not a bikini top in sight

I live in a small town
A nonviolent town
No one is homeless
Not one starving soul

I live in a small town
And after miles of travel
I could say it is nice to be
Back home safe and warm
