lyrics

Short wars in the cornfields
A rope swing in Swan’s hayloft
The Hojack train we chased after
And a pocket of change to spend at Strong’s

Dusty lanes through the orchards
A bike race down West Somerset Road
Keg Creek on a Saturday evening
Wet sneakers, cattails, and a faraway feeling

A tree house in the hedge row
A painted sign, “No girls allowed”
Crayfish hunts in the farm ponds
Hide-and-seek after the sun went down

Kick-ball in the side yard
The long journey to the gravel pits
Riding back home down Hess Road
Two muddy and sweaty exhausted kids

The tracks were built over
The trains go to the coal plant now
The rails aren’t as fun to walk on
But I still remember how

And I will always remember
Appleton the way it was back then
When we could call it our playground
But we are strangers now
And you will never know how sorry I am
