NO FREE PARKING

Dad started his store
Back when stores could be started
If he saw it today
He's be so broken hearted
You can't compete
With the corporations
The story's the same all across the nation

The little guy's been squeezed too hard
Now there's no free parking in your own back yard

They closed the factory in North Carolina
Seems everything now says made in China
Overnight our world was gone
When something ain't right it's gotta be wrong

The little guy's been squeezed too hard
Now there's no free parking in your own back yard

In a dream I am riding a train with my father
The air smells sweet and we're both laughing
Some days I hate to wake up

The wife says I over dramatize
But I can feels something missing now in our lives
Could be some chemical they put in our water
She says 'if you can't fix it
Then why let it bother you so?'

My sister sold Grandpa's watch today
She got four hundred dollars for it on ebay
I hate to see it go but it's just a thing
I can close my eyes and hear Grandpa singing

The little guy's been squeezed too hard
Now there's no free parking in your own backyard
The little guy's been squeezed to hard
Now there's no free parking in your own backyard
