Logan Mize – Welcome To Prairieville Lyrics

That sign ain’t right on the edge of town
The population keeps going down
And there’s for sale signs on just about everything

Manny’s Bar is about all that’s left
And there’s a tire shop, but it’s probably next
Oh hell, who knows, they’ve been saying that for years

It’s a pretty drive if you’ve got the time to kill
Welcome to Prairieville

Benny’s brother Joe sells firewood
When he ain’t passed out on the hood
Yeah, his roadside stand don’t look much anymore

They say it used to be quite a sight
Red tomatoes piled shoulder-high
Yeah, sweet Vidalias and everything in between

They strum a mess of oil rigs through his fertile fields
Welcome to Prairieville

I tried leaving but
It always pulls me back
I just can’t seem to let it go
Maybe it’s the water that
Just gets in your blood
And some of the dust gets in your soul
I don’t understand it and I never will
Welcome to Prairieville

Day Old drives an old fixer up
Black and silver-striped step side truck
He sold it twice and bought it back both times

See, it’s where he first kissed Emily
Now she’s working on number three
With some slick-haired man
The next town up the road

They got a brand-new place on one of the higher hills
Between there and Prairieville

I tried leaving but
It always pulls me back
I just can’t seem to let it go
Maybe it’s the water that
Just gets in your blood
And some of the dust gets in your soul
I don’t understand it and I never will
Welcome to Prairieville

I tried leaving but
It always pulls me back
I just can’t seem to let it go
Maybe it’s the water that
Just gets in your blood
And some of the dust gets in your soul
I don’t understand it and I never will
Welcome to Prairieville

That sign ain’t right on the edge of town
The population keeps going down
And there’s for sale signs on just about everything
