[Verse 1]
A                                             E
..A couple of kids got hit by a Union Pacific train
         F#m
Carrying sheet metal and household appliances
                    D
Through the pouring rain
          A
They were planning on getting married
After graduation
      E
Had a little baby girl
                         F#m
Trouble came and shut it down
                                   D
Things like that ain’t supposed to happen
[Chorus]
              A
In this quiet town
             E
Families are tight
        F#m
Good people
                                         D
They still don’t deadbolt their doors at night
              A    E    F#m    D    
In this quiet town...............

[Verse 2]
                    A         
When we first heard opioid stories
                               E
They were always in whispering tones
    F#m
Now banners of sorrow
                                  D
Mark the front steps of childhood homes
Parents wept through daddy’s girl eulogies
    A
And merit badge milestones
                         E
With their daughters and sons
                                         F#m
Laying there lifeless in their suits and gowns
                          D
Somebody’s been keepin’ secrets
[Chorus]
              A
In this quiet town
                 E
They know how to live
        F#m
Good people who lean on Jesus
                    D
They’re quick to forgive
              A    E    F#m    D
In this quiet town...............

[Verse 3]
               A  
Now whenever I am near the town
                         E
I’ll find some reason to give
           F#m
And I will walk with the dead and the living
                D
Where I used to live

And every time I see my parents
       A
In the prime of their lives
               E
Offering their son
                                    F#m
The kind of love he could never put down
                               D
Well part of me is still that stainless kid
Lucky

[Chorus]
              A
In this quiet town
            E
Salt of the land
                F#m
Hard-working people
If you’re in trouble
                   D
They’ll lend you a hand
                   A    E    F#m    D
Here in this quiet town...............

[Instrumental]
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                            A    E    F#m    D    A
That cries away from a quiet town.........................
