Written and Recorded by Tom T. Hall
[C]Yeah I remember it now [F]we were kids back then [C]living down on the farm
[G7]We were told that the city [F]could only bring us [C]harm
How far is the city [F]somebody said [C]you know that’s a great big town
[G7]And Barbara said why it’s a million miles [F]and the story got [C]around
It’s a [F]million miles to the [C]city from the [G7]hills and the valleys we [C]know
It’s a [F]million miles to the [C]city and some [G7]day we all wanna [C]go
There was a town near by [F]but a town is a town
And a [C]city well that’s somethin’ else
[G7]Our daddy had been to a city [F]but he never was much [C]help
Why the buildings are [F]taller than oak trees
[C]Ah but we knew better than that
[G7]Ain’t nobody could climb that high the [F]cities were wide and [C]flat
Well now time has passed and [F]we have grown and [C]traveled far and wide
[G7]The cities have changed the kids we were [F]we see it in each other’s [C]eyes
Lord I’d love to go back to [F]those hills again [C]to the boy I used to be
[G7]Where the leaves in the wind
And the whippoorwills [F]were part of the land like [C]me
Repeat #2 x2[/chordpress]
