There're no stars shinin' here tonight,
The only things shinin' are the neon lights;
There's no open meadow where a man can roam,
City, I want to go home.

There's no grass growin' on a city street,
There's no friendly faces on the people I meet;
I can stand in a crowd and be all alone,
City, I want to go home…

Where a river is a river, and a tree is a tree,
Where I can find friendly country people like me;
Where the whippoorwills sing,
and the green grass grows,
City, I want to go home.

I bought me a ticket on a big Greyhound,
The wheels are hummin', I'm homeward bound;
Soon I won't ever, ever be alone,
City, I'm on my way home…

Where a river is a river and a tree is a tree,
Where I can find friendly country people like me;
Where the whippoorwills sing,
and the green grass grows,
City, I want to go home.

City, I'm on my way home…
