35 mph Town
Written by Toby Keith and Bobby Pinson
Recorded by Toby Keith

Mama locked the door last night for the first time in all of her years
I said mammy you gotta be kidding me
She said things ain't like they used to be round here
You just wouldn't believe it kids growing up without Jesus
F D7
Good thing your daddy ain't here to see this now
C G7 C
They stay higher than the water tower in this 35 mile an hour town

She said it ain't the drugs it ain't the booze
I've had a backroad buzz or two myself
It seems like heaven is slipping further away
The devil ain't got far to go when they raise hell

We used to burn a hole through midnight smoking a stolen Marlboro Light and
F D7
On a good night might kill a 5th of Crown
C G7 C
But now there's a lower higher power in this 35 mile an hour town

F G7
Oh we can't blame the babies for growing up lazy
And crazy it ain’t them that let them down
F G7
If they ain't stealing they’re suing why work when we'll give it to 'em
Am G7 F
It's right there in the bible that we don't put out
C G7 C
Spare the rod and you'll sour a 35 mile an hour town

The yes mam’s gone and the please is too
It's out the door with the thank you in the evening
You don't see a front yard football game
The neighbor kids have done away with the shirt and skins

No one hits the front porch lights to get their kids to come inside
F D7
Cause the streets ain't safe for a bike to ride down
C G7 Am F
Since they planted a prowler in this 35 mile an hour town
No they're going nowhere fast tonight
G7 F G7 C
No matter how fast they drive this 35 mile an hour town
