C, G, F

I ain't one that likes to admit defeat,
I ain't one that just gives up and quits,
but When I look around, I can see that this is it,
this damn City life has got me beat!


How can they call this city life?
How can they call this city life any life at all?

can't get any sleep with noise out on the street
Can't walk down to a stream and catch a fish,
Guess if I had me just one lonely wish,
it'd be to feel the dirt beneath my feet! (chorus)

can't look up and watch and eagle fly
wish I could go back and ride my horse a while
What I wouldn't give for just one honest smile,
I think I'll tell these city streets "good bye!"

I'm going back to the country life
saying goodbye to the city life
never will understand how you call this city life
any life at all........
