they all leave town


Sometime, when we all show up

---'s got a pickup truck

They come down here to get some kinda degree

At a little southern University

From New Jersey and Delaware

Funny clothes and funny hair

Those northern girls like to cut loose

When you're spitting that tobacco juice

Oh, but they all leave town

When summer rolls around

I really miss those kids

All that higher education we did


The local women got no teeth

my -- they all gotta be

Three kids and one on the way

But it's the same thing everyday


Don't go telling my sweet Loiuse

I've been seeing no college girl, please

That'd really make her jump and shout

Daddy get his shotgun out


Aw, when they all leave town

when summer rolls around

I do what I'm told

For three months I'm good as gold

Ah, but they're back next fall

I can't wait to see 'em all

Little girls in their brand new shoes

They can't wait to hear my sing the blues


I hope y'all remember me

Not as this dirty redneck you see

But one who still serves higher learning today

Just in a low down kinda way

I'm feeling guilty so I must confess

One thing about it give me no rest

I hate to hear 'em call my name

'cause that yankee accent drive a man insane


Aw, but they all leave town

when summer rolls around

I cool off in the shade

Drink my lemonade

Maybe they all laugh at me

In Deleware and New Jersey

But they can do just what they please

Pass the cornbread, sweet Louise


And they all leave town...
