Water Tower Town Sweetheart


Raise your hand if you are from a water tower town? 
You know, the towns where the tallest structure smack in the middle of town can be seen for miles around is the water tower. Hopefully it doesn't boast Billy Bob loves Charlene in the color John Deere Green, or show signs of any other graffiti.  And if it does, that just adds flavor and originality, right?
I am from one of those water tower towns. 
Wilson, OK.
We have the one above, which has been there forever, and two skinny blue ones which are near my parents home. This particular tower holds a few memories.
One memory I was recently reminded of on the Facebook page "You know you're from Wilson, OK if..."
One of my classmates brother climbed that old water tower, I believe he had a BB gun with him. He was only a few years older than myself. I think the entire town went down to watch, scared that he would jump. He didn't and now has a wife and kids.
Season 10 American Idol winner, Scotty McCreery sings the following song about a water tower town. 
I think it stands true, at least for my hometown. 
What do you think?
Oh, and should I petition the mayor and city council of Wilson to put my name on the tower also?
I'm thinking the crown and pink are a nice added touch.



In a water tower town everybody waves,
Church doors are the only thing that's open on Sundays
Word travels fast, wheels turn slow
Yeah workin' hard and livin' right is the only life we know

Friday night football is king
Sweet tea goes good with anything
The fireflies come out when the sun goes down.
Nobody eats 'til you say amen
And everybody knows your mom and them
You can see who loves who for miles around
In a water tower town.

Where your friend's a friend and your word's your word
And our pickup trucks, they ain't for looks, they're made for work
Corn grows high, crime stays low
There's little towns everywhere where everybody knows

Friday night football is king
Sweet tea goes good with anything
And the girls come out when the sun goes down.
Nobody eats 'til you say amen
And everybody knows your mom and them
You can see who loves who for miles around
In a water tower town.

Yeah, Friday night football is king
Sweet tea goes good with anything
Peace and quiet make such a beautiful sound.
Nobody eats 'til you say amen
And everybody knows your mom and them
You can see who loves who for miles around
In a water tower town.
Yeah, in a water tower town.
