Centralia
by Ken Battista 2004



By the time the next census rolls around
There may not be anyone left in this 'ole town
Some refuse to leave
A place their family
Called home sweet home
Four walls of memories

In a town called Centralia
You won't find pink azaleas
Only smoke from the fire grows underground
There's serenity
Someone put a sign up on a tree
That says we love Centralia

Solo

In a town called Centralia
You won't find pink azaleas
Anymore there's just smoke rising from the ground
There's serenity
I'm sure the folks there still agree
'cause they say we still love Centralia
