"Town" appears in this game as the first town theme. It plays in every town, and is listed as the eighth track in the NES soundtrack, and the tenth track of the first disk in the PS soundtrack. It also appears as a purchasable theme in Dissidia Final Fantasy and remixed on the Chocobo Racing Original Soundtrack under the name "White Mage's Theme". A live performance is included on the A New World: intimate music from Final Fantasy album.
"Town" returns in Final Fantasy II, with a similar feel to the original Final Fantasy version. It appears as the twenty seventh track in the original NES soundtrack, and the ninth track of disk two in the PS soundtrack. It is also included on the Final Fantasy Vinyls collector's set album on the fourth disc.
Template:Listen "My Hometown", originally called "故郷の街ウル" (Furusato no Machi Uru lit. Hometown Ur) in the Famicom version, is the town theme used most often in Final Fantasy III, appearing in all towns but three. "Time Remains", originally 古代人の村 (Kodaijin no Mura lit. Village of the Ancients) in the Famicom version, plays only in the Village of the Ancients, and "Return of the Warrior", which was originally 勇者の帰還 (Yūsha no Kikan lit. Return of the Hero), plays in Kazus and Castle Sasune after the warriors defeat Djinn, and Saronia after defeating Gigameth.
"My Hometown" is also part of the "Following the Wind" track on the Final Fantasy III: Eternal Legend of the Wind album, and is vocalized on the Final Fantasy Song Book "Mahoroba" album, called "Machi" (Town).
Lyrics to "Machi" (Town)
- Tobu tori no sora o miage
- Nekoronda nohara
- Yawarakai hizashi ga
- Hoo o terashiteru
- Midori no umi no sazanami
- Mimi o sumashite
- Yuruyaka ni nagareru
- Toki ni mi o makase
- Me o tojite, fukaku iki o hakidashite
- Odayaka ni naru kokoro
- Kokyou wa itsudemo watashi ni
- Yawarakai jikan o kureru
- Onaji sora no shita de
- Keredo tooku hanareteru
- Ima hitorikiri no machi
- Sugosu hibi wa
- Kibou to yume to fuan to
- Soshite samishisa ga
- Karamatte tama ni namida
- Nagasu keredo
- Osanai hi--yume ni, egaita mirai ni
- Kanarazu deau tame ni
- Sore made wa ima kono machi de
- Jibun o shinjite susumou
- Mihatenu yume o motometeru
- Looking up at a sky of flying birds
- Lying down in a field
- Gentle sunbeams
- Shining on my cheeks
- Ripples of an emerald sea
- I strain to hear
- Going with the gentle flow
- Of time
- I close my eyes, take a deep breath
- My heart grows tranquil
- My hometown always gives me
- Gentle times
- Beneath the same sky
- Yet far apart
- Now the town is mine alone
- The days I spend here
- Hopes and dreams and uneasiness
- And loneliness, too
- All tangle together; sometimes
- I let the tears flow, although
- Younger days--dreams, and the future I imagined
- So I can be sure I'll come across them
- I'll be in this town until then
- Keeping on, believing in myself
- In search of boundless dreams
Template:Listen The song "Welcome to our Town", called 街のテーマ (Machi no Tēma lit. "Town Theme") in the Japanese soundtrack, plays in most towns in Final Fantasy IV.

The Piano Collections version is also found on the Potion: Relaxin' with Final Fantasy album.
