Well I'm a cityboy with a countryheart My head is in the sky my feet are on the ground And you never ever find me, no, where my horse don't wanna go I know my way around but it doesn't always show
I got a citylook but a countrysound My hand in the dirt my mind underground And I paid my dues that's why I never pay for my drinks Well, "never" is quite an exaggeration Typical, a county thing - like this
She said "Boy, what do you want ?" and I said "Ma'm, well, I don't know yet, I just landed in this big town, guess I'm looking for some love" And she said "Hey, if you mean pussy, you gotta pay me upfront I charge fifty for a cowboy and a hundred for his horse"
And my mind may be dirty but at least my fingernails are clean I'm the cleanest motherfucker this city has ever seen I leave my gun at your doorstep but not my horse, oh no siree ! And when I'm sleeping at the Waldorf there is still country in my dreams
