Lowville (4:27) © 2006 Jason Paul Johnston
Welcome to Lowville. Come say hello to all my friends down here.
No high places. Only long faces, stretched out by the years.
They call me the mayor. I may or may not be all they had in mind.
But I fit the profile. And I've stuffed the ballot box with notes in kind.

Lowville: Nothing but down is in this town
Lowville: So nothing but up can take us out
Lowville: I just don't want to go
It's no-ville: Nowhere for a family to call home

Here's my brother Sorrow. He's got a lot to talk about today.
And my sis Suffer. She lived in Hell, so this is an upgrade...
There's something about it. Something about this town that I can't place.
We've got all the heroes. But we've never held a victory parade...

Oh...I don't want to go. Oh my darling oh, but I know..the boat it leaves port tomorrow and I should at least show up long enough to wave.
But I've built my life here and all it's troubles and I've even purchased my grave...Lowville, Lowville.

Cause this is my home still. It's all that I've known and all I have today
I'll raise some children. But I'll pray they find the grace to get away
