A-town Down

Verse 1

Dale was a boy that was easy to miss,
He was done in by love’s first kiss.
He grabbed his hunting riffle off it’s rack,
He made a choice that he couldn’t take back.


Chorus

This is like a sickness practically a disease,
It’s a chronic condition that brings me to my knees.
If you want to name it, say it with a frown.
What we have here is a thing called A-town down.


Verse 2

Miguel had a good old time drinkin every night,
but the poor kid couldn’t seem to get it right.
When he got drunk and decided he couldn’t take any more,
He took off his face with his daddy’s forty-four.



Chorus2

This is like a sickness practically a disease,
It’s a chronic condition that brings me to my knees.
If you want to name it, say it with a frown.
What we have here is a thing called A-town down.


Verse3

Jonny was the kid with the million dollar voice,
He partied hardy and liked to make a lot of noise.
He lost it all and started acting like his old self,
He snorted some pills from the bottle on the shelf.



Chorus3

This is like a sickness practically a disease,
It’s a chronic condition that brings me to my knees.
If you want to name it, say it with a frown.
What we have here is a thing called A-town down.



Verse 4

Beka was a girl looking forward to life,
She loved fun, and hated drama and strife.
She partied for days on end, she was keeping it real.
On her ride home, little miss beka fell asleep at the wheel.



Chorus3

This is like a sickness practically a disease,
It’s a chronic condition that brings me to my knees.
If you want to name it, say it with a frown.
What we have here is a thing called A-town down.

I have songs with this pattern. When you get into a pattern it's always good to break it up. Sing the chorus twice or sing part of the chorus twice. Add a bridge in there somewhere. Write another verse but don't separate it with a chorus like go v1 c1 v2 c2 v3 v4 c3 something like that keeps it fresh. As far as the writing goes I love it
