lyrics

It's a two-bar town, seen better days
No one comin' round off the interstate
They moved the spot for the county fair
The last thing you got is the getting there
There's the getting lost, but no getting found
There's no getting out of a two-bar town

The old ferris wheel makes a silhouette
Eight legs of steel on a red sunset
You can walk the street from end to end
Lots of folks to meet but not a single friend
See the neon shine when the sun goes down
There's no getting out of a two-bar town

In a two-bar town, there's no night or day
There's just sun comes out, sun goes away
There's the getting lost, but no getting found
There's no getting out of a two-bar town

The old motel has a buzzing sign
And you might as well stop and stay the night
While you lie awake, you hear the westbound train
Makes the glass to shake in the window frame
It'll make your teeth to sweat, make your heart to pound
There's no getting out of a two-bar town

In a two-bar town, there's no night or day
There's just sun comes out, sun goes away
There's the getting lost, but no getting found
There's no getting out of a two-bar town
There's no getting out of a two-bar town

Since their start in 2012, Jack Hotel has proven itself one of the best, and most original, folk acts in the midwest. ... more
