The 100th Town
by Luanne Crosby
This is a song I wrote for the Town of Westborough's 300th Anniversary in 2017. Westborough is the 100th town incorporated in the state - thus the name of the song. Enjoy!

There will be, as in olden days
The town citizens in those earliest days
Weren't from around here, they came a long way
Embraced a new life and new land unseen
Arrived by the power of wind & of dreams
Some ended up fighting the country they fled
We’re the United States on the blood that they shed
But true revolution has many a face
It’s not only war that changes a place
Industrial growth touched this small farming town
Which over the years has seen ups and seen downs
Has grown & has prospered, has struggled & won
And we are a part of all it’s become
So that brings us here, to this day, in the present
To a town that is thriving, and pretty and pleasant
A rich tapestry in our midst has unfurled
Made with neighbors that come from all parts of the world
We’re Techies, and truckers, We’re teachers and more
And all of us touched by who lived here before
