Lyrics

    The sun is hanging low on the skyline
    On this sleepy old Ohio town
    The people think that change is the devil
    So the sun is not allowed to go down

        And the drivers eyes are glued to the rearview
        Cuz his car is always in reverse
        And if you race to where you've already been, then
        You are always gonna get there first

            Welcome to the town of the sundown
            Welcome to the town of the sundown
            Welcome to the land that time forgot
            Welcome to the town of the sundown
            Welcome to the town of the sundown
            It sure ain't much, but it's the only town I've got

    Every time I open the paper
    To the letters to the editor page
    The trogolodytes who can't keep their mouths shut
    They've really got me in a fumin' rage

        This self-appointed king of the virtues
        Trying to sell us what we threw away
        He's a dumpster-diving prophet
        He could rule the USA

            Welcome to the town of the sundown
            Welcome to the town of the sundown
            Welcome to the land that time forgot
            Welcome to the town of the sundown
            Welcome to the town of the sundown
            It sure ain't much, but it's the only town I've got

    So this is what our children inherit
    It's what our parents left behind for us
    The trophies from our grandpa's old basement
    With a thicker coat of rust and dust

        I guess there's nothing left to discover
        So let's just park our cars and rest
        Cuz the mission here's accomplished
        Don't it feel like a success?
