  • I was born dirt poor on a dead-end country road
    My every dream was to just grow up and go
    Like a siren song, those bright lights called my name
    So I turned that country road into memory lane

    Well, I hit that fast lane; it was paved with gold
    But it wasn't long till my highbrow ways got old
    I started missing things that I thought I'd left behind
    Till I found two swinging doors 'neath the neon sign

    They were whirling and a twirling to the fiddles and a steel guitar
    Them city folk was drinking from Mason jars
    I think I found what paradise might be
    The city put the country back in me

    When you leave the farm, you don't have to leave your room
    Just go on home and slip on them cowboy boots
    Now it's the best of both worlds, all I'll ever need
    The city put the country back in me

    They were whirling and a twirling to the fiddles and a steel guitar
    Them city folk was drinking from Mason jars
    I think I found what paradise might be
    The city put the country back in me
    Yeah, the city put the country back in me
