Ringling, Ringling lyrics

Ringling, ringling
By: jimmy buffett
1974
Ringlin', ringlin' slippin' away
Only forty people livin' there today
Streets are dusty and the bank has been torn down
It's a dyin' little town

Church windows broken, that place ain't been used in years
Jail don't have a sheriff or a cell
And electric trains they run by maybe once or twice a month
Easin' it on down the muscle shell

Chorus:
Ringlin', ringlin' slippin' away
Only forty people livin' there today
'cause the streets are dusty and the bank has been torn down
It's a dyin' little town

And across from the bar there's a pile of beer cans
Been there twenty-seven years
Imagine all the heartaches and tears
In twenty-seven years of beer

So we hopped back in the rent-a-car
And we hit the cruise control
Pretty soon the town was out of site
Though we left behind a fat barmaid, a cowboy, and a dog
Bracin' for a ringlin' friday night

Chorus:
Ringlin', ringlin' you're just slippin' away
I wonder how many people will be there a year from today
'cause the streets are dusty and the bank has been torn down
It's a dyin' little town
Yeah, it's a dyin' little town
