about

Original song written by Shaun Stief about his hometown of Greenville, IL

lyrics

Well everyone has a story, if they're staying in this town.
And most were passing through here, when fate decided to let them down.

But if I had half a chance, I'll tell you, what I'd do.
I'd pack my bags and say goodbye, and catch the next flight home to you, home to you...
And Midwestern Town, you're broken down, but you're my home, you're my home. (Won't you let me
go?)
And Midwestern Town, you're broken down, won't you let me go? You gotta let me go. Won't you let
me go?

And this place is like a heaven, where dreams they come to die.
I should have left here right away, and never stayed a single night.

But if I had half a chance, I'll tell you, what I'd do.
I'd pack my bags and say goodbye, and catch the next flight home to you, home to you...
And Midwestern Town, you're broken down, but you're my home, you're my home. (Won't you let me
go?)
And Midwestern Town, you're broken down, won't you let me go? You gotta let me go. Won't you let
me go?

Now tell me baby, where it is that you sleep?
Cause' I may never make it out, but maybe then we could
share our dreams, share our dreams.

And Midwestern Town, you're broken down, but you're my home, you're my home. (Won't you let me
go?)
And Midwestern Town, you're broken down, won't you let me go? You gotta let me go. Won't you let
me go?
