Capo: 3rd fret

INTRO
G   D  Em C
 
VERSE 1
G                                            D
  A couple of kids got hit by a Union Pacific train
           Em                                                      C
Carrying sheet metal and household appliances through the pouring rain
          G
They were planning on getting married after graduation
      D                                          Em
Had a little baby girl, trouble came and shut it down
                                    C
Things like that ain't supposed to happen
 
CHORUS 1
              G                   D
In this quiet town, families are tight
         Em                                            C
Good people, they still don't deadbolt their doors at night
                G
In this quiet town
 
   G      D     Em      C

VERSE 2
                    G                                               D
When we first heard opioid stories, they were always in whispering tones
    Em                                                  C
Now banners of sorrow mark the front steps of childhood homes
 
Parents wept through daddy's girl eulogies
    G                                               D
And merit badge milestones with their daughters and sons
                                         Em
Laying there lifeless in their suits and gowns
                         C
Somebody's been keepin' secrets
 
CHORUS 2
               G                      D
In this quiet town, they know how to live
      Em                                           C
Good people who lean on Jesus, they're quick to forgive
                G
In this quiet town
 
   D      D     Em           C

VERSE 3
                G                                        D
Now whenever I'm near the town I'll find some reason to give
            Em                                                C
And I will walk with the dead and the living where I used to live
                                        G
And every time I see my parents in the prime of their lives
                D                                       Em
Offering their son the kind of love he could never put down
                                C
Well, part of me is still that stainless kid, lucky
 
CHORUS 3
               G                 D
In this quiet town, salt of the land
               Em                                              C
Hard-working people, if you're in trouble, they'll lend you a hand
                     G
Here in this quiet town
 
   G      D   Em        C

SOLO
G D Em C
 
OUTRO
G
  The first crop of hay is up
D
School let out and the sun beats down
Em
  Smoke billows from a Sunday train
      C
That cries away from a quiet town
 
G D Em C
G
