[Verse 1]
Wipe the footprints off my dash
Tore up those sun-faded photographs
Threw ’em in the wind, ya’ll can have it back
I’m outta here
I stuck my middle finger up in the sky
Flipped off that “ya’ll come back” sign
Looked in the mirror one last time
And watched it disappear

[Chorus]
It ain’t nothin’ but a rearview town
Broken hearts and rusted plows
Roots ripped right up out of the ground
Never thought I’d ever leave it
It ain’t nothin’ what it used to be
Population minus me
On the other side of that dust cloud
Ain’t nothin’ but a rearview town

[Verse 2]
I could tough it out, but what’s the use?
A place that small, it’s hard to do
Too much of her to run into
And so much road to somewhere new

[Chorus]
It ain’t nothin’ but a rearview town
Broken hearts and rusted plows
Roots ripped right up out of the ground
Never thought I’d ever leave it
It ain’t nothin’ what it used to be
Population minus me
On the other side of that dust cloud
Ain’t nothin’ but a rearview town

[Bridge]
It ain’t nothin’ but yesterday
One less truck rollin’ down Main
Ain’t nothin’ left to say

[Chorus]
It ain’t nothin’ what it used to be
Population minus me
On the other side of that dust cloud
Ain’t nothin’ but a rearview town
Ain’t nothin’ but a rearview town
