Cordelia

I hate what they did to my town so I moved to another town

I hate what they did to my town so I moved to another town

 

I thought the change would do me good, Cordelia understood

The ghosts were creeping in on me and all my friends

But the house where I grew up is not my home

Cordelia, elsewhere will I roam?

 

I hate what they did to my town so I moved to another town

I hate what they did to my town so I moved to another town

 

Goddamn I wanna be free. Cordelia fetch my wings

Trash Hats are on the trail of this lonesome whippoorwill

But the house where I live is not my home

Cordelia, elsewhere will I roam?

 

And the interlopers on the corner sing

“I wish this town was more like New Orleans”

 

I hate what they did to my town so I moved to another town

I hate what they did to my town so I moved to another town

 

This old house ain’t gonna haunt itself. From PDX to the AVL

The old folks bitch and moan “do not renovate my home”

But this house was meant to flip and fly

Cordelia, it’s time to say goodbye

 

I hate what they did to my town so I moved to another town

I hate what they did to my town so I moved to another town
