"China Grove"

(As recorded by the Doobie Brothers)
TOM JOHNSTON

When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town
Down around San Antone
And the folks are risin' for another day
'Round about their homes
The people of the town are strange
And they're proud of where they came.

Well you talkin' 'bout (talkin' 'bout your) China Grove, woah
Woah-oh China Grove.

Well the preacher and the teacher
Lord they're a caution
They are the talk of the town
When the gossip gets to flyin', they ain't lyin'
When the sun goes fallin' down
They say everybody's insane
And dear Miss Perkin's a game

Well you talkin' 'bout (talkin' 'bout your) China Grove, woah
Woah-oh China Grove.

Well ev'ry day there's a new thang comin'
The ways of an oriental view
The sheriff and his buddies with their samurai swords
You can even hear the music at night
And though it's a part of the Lone Star State
People don't seem to care
They'll just keep on lookin' to the east.

Talkin' 'bout (talkin' 'bout your) China Grove, woah
Woah-oh China Grove.
