      About "Boomtown"

      Lyrics for Toby Keith - "Boomtown"

      The people came here from parts unknown
      Sleepin' in their cars 'cause they didn't have homes
      Thought this place was the promised land
      If you could roughneck, we could use a good man
      Come on boy let me show you around
      You could make a lot of money here

      Livin' in a boomtown
      We抣l some build bars and big hotels
      Downshift drive and the people live well
      High on the hog and wild on the range
      Pocket full of cash instead of chump change
      This place kicks when the sun goes down
      Ain't life great when you're livin' in a boomtown
      See oil was the blood that flowed through the soul
      To keep a man workin' when it's forty below
      Relent to the devil in the cold cold ground
      Trying to make a dollar here livin' in a boomtown

      Six short years the oil fields went
      Rigs came down and the money got spent
      And the wisemen saved for a rainy day
      The fools packed up and moved away
      The hotels closed and the bars shut down
      And it got real quiet livin' in a boomtown
      See oil was the blood that flowed through the soul
      To keep a man workin' when it's forty below
      Relent to the devil in the cold cold ground
      Trying to make a dollar here livin' in a boomtown

      Now the cafe's filled with people tellin' lies
      Trying to figure out how the town went dry
      You can buy a house a dime on the dollar
      Need a good home just give me a holler
      I can move you in with no money down
      Still tryin' to make a dollar here livin' in a boomtown
      Livin' in a boomtown
      Livin' in a boomtown
