“Gotta Get Outta This Town” is track 1 on my Somewhere Between Nicaragua & New York EP. It was the first track recorded for that album and my first tune released as a solo artist. That proved to be a poignant choice for a career starter; it suggests a long journey, an unsettled mind, a weary heart, and a need to figure out life, self, home, and world.


Lyrics

“Gotta Get Outta This Town”
Scott Troyer

Gotta get outta this town and get away from here.
Gotta get outta this town and all its tired people.
And no, it won’t be easy to leave the land I love,
But I gotta get outta this town and make it on my own.

Gotta get outta this town and search for something more.
Gotta get outta this town and head for distant shores.
And no, it won’t be easy to leave the ones I love,
But I gotta get outta this town and make the world my own.

Gotta get outta this town and find a better way.
Gotta get outta this town and hear what other people say.
Oh, can’t you see me losing it just a little more each day,
Oh, I gotta get outta this town and find myself a name.
