The actual meaning of the song is pretty straightforward. He was an outcast in high school. Wanted out of his hometown and would come back after he was famous and "buy the town" and show them. That is what he in fact did. He dropped out joined army. After he was famous his high school invited him back. He came back and showed everyone.

Love this song people wonder why it wasn't recorded until after his death even though he had been performing in for years before. I truly believe it was one of his most personal songs and that's why he didn't sell it.
