FRED EAGLESMITH lyrics : "Sweaburg General Store"

Well, things always cost a little moreWhen you buy them at the Sweaburg StoreBut the drive into town made it the sameSo it didn't matter, anywayYou could wake him up if your tank was on emptyThey wouldn't be happy, but they'd fill it up anywayI guess that's just the way things goThe Sweaburg General Store is closedBetter fill 'er up on your way homeIt's a sign of the times, I supposeUp and down the concessions,everybody knowsThe Sweaburg General Store is closedWell. town is a half an hour's driveAnd you're lucky to get out of there aliveAnd then there's something you forgotAnd then-a half the day is shotAnd it oughta be a lawIt oughta be a crimeThat's what they're saying on the 19th LineWe took it for granted, how were we to knowThe Sweaburg General Store is closedBetter fill 'er up on your way home It's a sign of the times, I supposeUp and down the concessions, everybody knowsThe Sweaburg General Store is closedWell Pa says it's been there for seventy yearsAnd it used to be an outlet for Simpson-SearsMa said she bought her wedding dress there And they threw in the flowers that she wore in her hairThey closed it once before back in '37But they opened it again at the end of the DepressionI guess these times are just like thoseThe Sweaburg General Store is closedBetter fill 'er up on your way homeIt's a sign of the times, I suppose Up and down the concessions, everybody knowsThe Sweaburg General Store is closedThe Sweaburg General Store is closedBetter fill 'er up on your way homeUp and down the concessions, everybody knowsThe Sweaburg General (thought it would never)The Sweaburg General Store is closed
