"In a Shanty in Old Shanty Town" is a song broadcast on Appalachia Radio in Fallout 76. It is performed by Johnny Long and his Orchestra and was recorded in 1940. Another version was recorded in 1946 with added instrumentation, though the recording that plays in-game is from 1940.

LyricsEdit

There's a shanty in a town on a little plot o' ground
With the green grass growin' all around, all around
The roof's so worn, so badly torn
That it tumbles to the ground

Just a tumbledown shack and it's built way back
About twenty-five feet from the railroad track
Lingers on my mind most all of the time
Keeps callin' me back to my little old shack

I'd be just as sassy as Haile Selassie
If I were King, wouldn't mean a thing
Put my boots on tall, read the writin' on the wall
And it wouldn't mean a thing, not a doggone thing

There's a Queen waitin' there in a rockin' chair
Just blowin' her top on Gator's Beer
Lookin' all around and truckin' on down
'Cause I'm dyin' to get back to my shanty town
