Local Boy
by The Rifles

Jimmy was a local boy but he's seen much more than the change in the weather,
Sitting in a uniform of the three-piece suit and ribbons from his past,
Looking for a little boy at the bar with the mouth who thinks his clever now,
Dreaming of a day that he got home from a war to his childhood sweetheart.

Now he don't need anyone, there's no one there for him,
Just a feeling of an empty place deteriorating
Jimmy was a local boy, but he's seen much more than im bound to ever,
A member of a dieing breed that sat and wait as it all just falls apart,
Thinking of a day that's oh so long ago, that he can't remember right,
There was a time a man can still be a man and be proud to use his heart,

Now he don't need anyone, there's no one there for him,
There was really only one,
Now he misses how she sounds he frowns lines them up and he puts them down,
Its sad this town seems to fail appreciate the man

Now he don't need anyone, there's no one there for him,
No he don't feel any more coz jimmy's so thick skinned,
And a long long time ago, when he could break her heart,
There was really only one,
He misses how she sounds he frowns, line em up and he puts em down
Its sad this town seems to fail appreciate what he's about,
Line them up and he puts them down
Its sad this town seems to fail appreciate the man

Jimmy was a local boy but he's seen much more than the change in the weather,
Sitting in a uniform of the three-piece suit and ribbons from his past,
Looking for a little boy at the bar with the mouth who thinks his clever now
Dreaming of a day that he got home from a war to his childhood sweetheart.
