Anyone Know the author
Good Old Country Town

(C) I'm 60 Miles or near enough from the (F) bright lights and the (C) noise
And 20 years protects me from it's (F) foibles and it's (G) ploys
I'm (F) light years from the future I (C)   guard it like a (Am) crown
I'm a (G) genuine two hotel good old country (Am) town
A (G) genuine good old country (C) town

I'm short on supermarkets, take-aways and drive in beers
But I'm long on friendly faces I've been this way for years
To see the smiling faces you'd swear I was a clown
I'm a genuine two hotel good old country town
A genuine good old country town

Each Friday night around five o'clock there's a real old hows-ya-been
At the Masons and the Victoria they really pack 'em in
The way the glasses empty you'd reckon I might drown
I'm a genuine two hotel good old country town
A genuine good old country town

Once a year each springtime I puts on me best clothes
And welcome all the refugees from the city in their droves
Salvation Jane's me colour I wear it like a crown
I'm a genuine two hotel good old country town
A genuine good old country town

So smother me with kindness as you look me up and down
But spare me from the progress that makes cities out of towns
Wrap me up in cotton wool, keep me back streets brown
I'm a genuine two hotel good old country town
A genuine good old country town

Repeat 1st verse
