lyrics

Sometimes I forget
Because we've gone so far
Our separate ways
In our separate lovers' cars

Y'all out west
And we farther east
I thought our contact had desisted
And ceased

Well, I'm coming home
For the holidays
To see my folks and my old friends
From my younger days

It just occurred to me
Maybe you are too
I kinda banked on never
Seeing you

Out in the parking lot
I almost forgot

You and I are from the same hometown
I don't wanna see you walking around

Will I see you at the grocery store?
The one between my house and yours

But you know,
I would really like it
If I ran into your mother
I never meant to break up with her
Or your sister or brother

I wanna ask her
If she's doing alright
How's your father's health
And is he sleeping through the night?

I know she'd be pleasant
And most cordial, I'm sure
But I wonder what she thinks of me
Or if she's a bit unsure

I hope she understands me
And what I have endured
But she's always in her family's corner
That's what I love about her

Out in the parking lot
I almost forgot

You and I are from the same hometown
I don't wanna see you walking around

Will I see you at the grocery store?
The one between my house and yours

Well, I ain't got nothing, no no
I ain't got nothing, no no
I ain't got nothing to say to you

You and I are from the same hometown
And I don't wanna see you walking around

Will I see you at the grocery store?
The one between my house and yours

Well, I ain't got nothing, no no
I ain't got nothing, no no
I ain't got nothing to say to you
To you
To you
