Are you from the big city or a small town?

    Well I was born in a small town
    And I live in a small town
    Probably die in a small town
    Oh, those small communities
    All my friends are so small town
    My parents live in the same small town
    My job is so small town
    Provides little opportunity
    Educated in a small town
    Taught the fear of Jesus in a small town
    Used to daydream in that small town
    Another boring romantic that's me
    But I've seen it all in a small town
    Had myself a ball in a small town
    Married an L.A. doll and brought her to this small town
    Now she's small town just like me
    No I cannot forget where it is that I come from
    I cannot forget the people who love me
    Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town
    And people let me be just what I want to be
    Got nothing against a big town
    Still hayseed enough to say
    Look who's in the big town
    But my bed is in a small town
    Oh, and that's good enough for me
    Well I was born in a small town
    And I can breathe in a small town
    Gonna die in this small town
    And that's probably where they'll bury me

    That’s been in my head for days

    Middle, 40,000 + people both where I grew up and town I currently live in is about this size as well.

    I love small towns. We bought our house ten years ago with nothing around and it was great, great, great! Now we have a humongous Walmart one mile down the road, the second one in this city and the third within an 8 mile drive. We have 176,537,439 restaurants churches, bakeries, gyms, dry cleaners, and auto parts stores within a two mile range now, too.

    I was so wrong. I just learnt population is 82,000 and getting bigger...

    Extremely small. The street I lived on was the same as my family name. We were the only two houses on that few mile stretch

    The stucco slabs of sleepy suburbia, where hot moms shop at Nordstrom Rack during the day, and outspoken anti-vaxxers on Facebook somehow get elected to city council. I would not be the whiny prozac-dependent millennial that I am today if it weren't for this funkytown!

    Born in a coalmining town in the Poconos, but was wrenched away at 5. It used to be safe & friendly. Now it's drug addled & people lock their doors.

    Since then only lived in the largest cities in the world... 4 continents, 7 countries, 11-12 states. In the states, lived the longest in Boston. Stopped counting at move #30.

    Since 5, never lived in a place smaller than Boston in population or in a house... only inner-city apt bldgs & giant apt complexes.

    Small towns make me a nervous wreck... it's impossible for me to imagine not going to the ballet, theater, symphony, lectures, concerts, espresso bars & to have 100 ethnic restaurants within walking distance to choose from at least a couple of times/wk. I get it, if you own property & have lawns, gardens, land, family & kids to attend to, so you have plenty to do... but, I'm a renter without all the aforementioned. I need 3M people bothering me at all hours of the day & night.

    Grew up in a town of 5,000 in Idaho. Went to college in Delaware, with a freshman class of 5,000, let alone the rest of the university, let alone the rest of the city! Something of a culture shock, believe you me.

    Currently live in a city of a couple hundred thousand...not sure if that qualifies as a "big city" or not by some people's standards.

    How many stop lights does it have?
    What’s a stop light?
    Is that like that one sign on Main Street that says STOP?
