Lyrics

Those country roads of the Midwest
Wholesome lives we knew the best
Plenty of wide open spaces to roam
It was the only place we called home
Then I saw the city
A little weird at first
Oh' the rhythm of the city
Would soon quench my thirst
Those country roots in my soul
Will always be my home
But it's clear to me
The place to be is the city

Chorus
I got to get back, Right back to the city
Where dreams run free
I got to get back, Right back to the city
I got to get back, Right back to the city
Surreality
I got to get back, Right back to the city

Hidden treasures like the melting mix
Are absent colors in the country stix
Everything in black and white
Kinda' makes you wonder if the plan is workin' right
Early to bed, Early to rise
Sunday school and Mom's apple pie
Some people call it the American dream
But things aren't always what they seem
'Cause another man's view of what's right for you
That ain't livin'

Chorus

Bridge
Well you choose where you move
And you move where you choose
But you won't be catchin' fireflies on a subway train
Well you choose where you move
And you move where you choose
But you won't be catchin' Broadway
In a field full of grain
Well I choose where I move
And I move where I choose
Decisions inside my head

Chorus

It keep's you comin'
Like a bad drug brings you back
That's the city
We're down with the groove
You know the girls they set the mood on fire
In the city
It keep's you comin'
Like a bad drug brings you back
That's the city
We're down with the groove
Bad boys you know we rule it all
In the city
