goin' to the city, got you on my mind
country sure is pretty, I'll leave it all behind
this is my decision, I'm comin' home to stay this time.
I'm like a fish out of water, just a man in a hole
the city lights turn my blues into gold
I ain't no country boy, I'm just a homesick man
I'm gonna hit that grit just as fast as I can.
I'll get off on main st, step into the crowd
sidwalk under my feet, yeah, traffic's good and loud
when I see my inner city child I'll be walkin' on a cloud.
I'm tired of layin' back, hangin' around
I'm gonna catch that train, then I'll be city bound...
