When the sun came up this morning it found me eastward bound,
Finally taken all I can of this city life I've found;
So I'm heading back to places that I couldn't wait to leave,
City life's no kind of life for a down east boy like me.

I've traveled west to Edmonton, been south to New Orleans,
And the folks back home would not believe some places I have seen;
I spent some time in Montreal, was alone there on the street,
'Cause city life's no kind of life for a down east boy like me.

I need to feel the green grass growing underneath my feet,
I need to watch the sunset as I walk along the beach;
I need to feel the morning breeze when it blows in from the sea,
A city life's no kind of life for a down east boy like me.

When the sun goes down on my hometown I'll be only miles away,
I swear this time when I get back that's where I'm gonna stay;
Tomorrow you will find me in my home down by the sea,
A city life's no kind of life for a down east boy like me.

I need to feel the green grass growing underneath my feet,
I need to watch the sunset as I walk along the beach;
I need to feel the morning breeze when it blows in from the sea,
A city life's no kind of life for a down east boy like me.

Those city lights they shine too bright for a down east boy like me.
