North Carolina, my old hometown

Although the surroundings see harsh and forgotten

And all the people look like they've just lost all hope of living

And the elders walking with all their might to make to their next destination

And homes that look they've been built during our ancestor's time

These are the things that others

See within their eyes of

North Carolina, my old hometown

Then those are the ones who

Have never lived there half of all their lives

To know that one of your older cousin's on you father's side

Used to work at the White House, with Bill Clinton

Or to even know that the local downtown Burger King near the mall

Is also the local meeting place for over half the motorcycles that are located

At my old hometown in North Carolina

These are the things that I see beyond my eyes

Of North Carolina, my old hometown
