[Verse 1]
A A couple of kids got hit by a
Union Pacific train
F#m Carrying sheet metal and

household appliances through
the pouring rain
A They were planning on getting

married after graduation
E Had a little baby girl,

trouble came and
shut it down
Things like that ain't
supposed to happen
[Chorus 1]
A In this quiet town,
families are tight
F#m Good people, they still don't
deadbolt their doors at night
A In this quiet town A E F#m D [Verse 2]
A When we first heard opioid stories,

they were always in
whispering tones
F#m Now banners of sorrow mark the
front steps of childhood homes
Parents wept through

daddy's girl eulogies
A And merit badge milestones
with their daughters and sons
Laying there lifeless in
their suits and gowns
D Somebody's been keepin' secrets [Chorus 2]
A In this quiet town, they
know how to live
F#m Good people who lean on Jesus,
they're quick to forgive
A In this quiet town E E F#m D [Verse 3]
A Now whenever I'm near the town
I'll find some reason to give
F#m And I will walk with the dead and

the living where
I used to live
And every time I see my
parents in the

prime of their lives
E Offering their son the

kind of love
he could never put down
Well, part of me is still that
stainless kid, lucky
[Chorus 3]
A In this quiet town,
salt of the land
F#m Hard-working people,

if you're in trouble,
they'll lend you a hand
A Here in this quiet town

A E F#m D [Bridge] A E F#m D [Outro]
A The first crop of hay is up E School let out and the sun beats down F#m Smoke billows from a Sunday train D That cries away from a quiet town A
