    Boy say to me, he say, "Ay Yuk! What's yo favorite city?"
    And I say "West Virginia. That's my home town."

    [Chorus:]
    Take me back to West V-A
    Take me back to Charleston
    It's them doggone busy city streets
    That I'm ridin' to get far from
    Ridin' to a small town
    Ridin' to a small town
    Take me back to Massachusetts
    Take me back to Cape Cod
    It's them doggone big ol' city buildings
    I'm ridin' to escape from
    Ridin' to a small town
    Ridin' to a small town

    [B. Stille]
    Yo, uh, ridin' past beautiful cow fields
    Top down see how the air feels
    I see trees that was here before me
    Seem like each one's telling a story
    I just wanna go hit the local bar
    Where the owner's fat and smoke cigars
    Where country girls attracted me
    Like everybody works in a factory
    Where they ship they goods to bigger places
    A city lights just could never replace this
    Where high school sports is what we live for
    Hit the lotto and next week you still poor
    In a small town

    [Chorus:]
    Take me back to West V-A
    Take me back to Charleston
    It's them doggone busy city streets
    That I'm ridin' to get far from
    Ridin' to a small town
    Ridin' to a small town
    Take me back to Massachusetts
    Take me back to Cape Cod
    It's them doggone big ol' city buildings
    I'm ridin' to escape from
    Ridin' to a small town
    Ridin' to a small town

    [Ron Clutch]
    They say the whole damn world is country
    Small town livin', not a porch monkey
    Dirt road and gravel, anywhere you travel
    Mechanic is the sheriff is the judge with the gavel
    Everybody cousin, cuz everybody kin
    Piggly Wiggly one school everybody friends
    From high school football to family reunions
    Movin' at the speed of life drunk by noon and
    That's my uncle, I know everybody got one
    Freaky-ass white girl, daddy got a shotgun
    Fly through the town, ya blink ya might miss it
    City slicker in the country wish you come visit

    Come on down, come on down
    Come on down, come on down

    Lil' Yuk, what you think about that right there?

    [Lil' Yuk]
    Like, man, uh, I like North Carolina.
    I like Kentucky, Tennessee, like...
    I don't wanna, I wanna see something important and take a right and right there at it
    I don't like all that traffic.
    I like to get where I'm going
    I like people with things on they man like,
    "Let's have a good time, let's sit on the porch."
    That's what I was telling my homeboy Plump down in Duluth.
    You know, in Georgia
    We was gonna kick it and do it way big.
    He always show us around at the office
    And like why you go to the office?
    I'm like "Man it's some real people comin' from a small town."
    And that's where I'm from.
    And that's where I do rappin'
    That's Nappy Roots.
    That's Fish Scales, and that's Clutch
    an that's B. Stille and that's Skinny Deville, that's V
    That's, that's history, man
    You know when you from the country everything's cool, you know
    Give us a front porch, give us a thing of Patron and give us
    you know a few Corona, a Red Stripe.
    You know, things like that
    Budweiser if ya money's low.
    But we gonna have a good time, man
    we comin from a small town.
    Bowling Green, Kentucky
    Milledgeville, Georgia.
    You know thangs like that
    I like Keepwater (??) Mississippi, you know, Florida
    All them places like that, small town
    Still love for LA and Chicago, but when I wanna kick I wanna be in a small town

    [Chorus:]
    Take me back to West V-A
    Take me back to Charleston
    It's them doggone busy city streets
    That I'm ridin' to get far from
    Ridin' to a small town
    Ridin' to a small town
    Take me back to Massachusetts
    Take me back to Cape Cod
    It's them doggone big ol' city buildings
    I'm ridin' to escape from
    Ridin' to a small town
    Ridin' to a small town
