China Grove
The Doobie Brothers

 

When the sun comes up on the 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're talking 'bout China Grove
Wo ho ho! ( Wo 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 flying and they ain't lyin’
When the sun goes falling down

They say that the father's insane
and dear Miss Perkin’s a game

We're talking 'bout your China Grove
( Talking 'bout your China Grove )
Wo ho ho! ( Wo oh! ) (( China Grove ))

But every day there's a new thing coming
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 just keep on looking to the east
We're talking 'bout your China Grove
( Talking 'bout your China Grove )
Wo ho ho! ( Wo oh! ) (( China Grove ))
