Brantley Gilbert & Lindsay Ell’s ‘What Happens in a Small Town’ Lyrics



Brantley Gilbert and Lindsay Ell give fans the low down on “What Happens in a Small Town.” The collaborative single from Gilbert’s 2019 LP Fire & Brimstone tackles the awkward scenario of returning to all the old places you used to visit with your ex.

“Friday night bleachers, Sunday pews” no longer feel sacred, as everyone around you feels the strangeness of your solo presence. The music video for “What Happens in a Small Town” paints the right picture — a small isolated city filled with memories of the one you used to be with and feelings that never changed. 

Check out the lyrics and music video below.

I can’t go for a ride to clear my head
‘Cause everything I pass puts you back in it
Yeah we’re done, movin’ on
But you can’t be too far gone

‘Cause what happens in a small town stays in a small town
Every back road, we’ve ever gone down
Friday night bleachers, Sunday pews
Ain’t a county line mile without a memory of you
Every whisper, every room, I walk in
Every time the bartender fills it up again
Everybody knows why I’m here, and you ain’t around
‘Cause what happens in a small town, stays in a small town

Oh we said this goodbye was the last
I guess I could leave, I could run from the past
And from us, and from you

But this is where I belong, this is my home too

What happens in a small town stays in a small town
Every back road, we’ve ever gone down
Friday night bleachers, Sunday pews
Ain’t a county line mile without a memory of you
Every whisper, every room, I walk in
Every time the bartender fills it up again
Everybody knows why I’m here, and you ain’t around
‘Cause what happens in a small town, stays in a small town

Yeah, I’m still here, yeah
Yeah, and every time I see that little white Jeep
Yeah, that hand-me-down Ford pullin’ down your street
I wonder if somebody’s in my seat
If you’re movin’ on or you’re stuck like me
What happens in a small town, stays in a small town
Oh yeah

What happens in a small town stays in a small town
Every back road, we’ve ever gone down
Friday night bleachers, Sunday pews
Ain’t a county line mile without a memory of you
Every whisper, every room, I walk in
Every time the bartender fills it up again
Everybody knows why I’m here, and you ain’t around
(You ain’t around)
‘Cause what happens in a small town, stays in a small town

It stays in a small town
It stays in a small town
And I’m still here
(What happens in a small town)
I’m still here
(Stays in a small town)
I’m still here
Yeah I’m still here
I’m still here
