AIN'T NO PLACE FOR A COUNTRY BOY (Bob Leftridge) Chris LeDoux - 1971 I packed my clothes in a cardboard box and Mama packed my lunch I walked down to the highway and caught a Trailways bus I woke up in the city, stepped down on the kerb To the strangest lookin' people and sounds I've never heard It ain't no place for a country boy It ain't no place to be It might be fine for a city boy But it ain't no place for me I kept my nineteen dollars stuck way down in my shoe It cost me seven-fifty for a dirty sleepin' room My window faced the alley and the city smells were strong I couldn't sleep for horns and sirens blowin' all night long It ain't no place for a country boy It ain't no place to be It might be fine for a city boy But it ain't no place for me I didn't even bother to unpack the clothes that I'd brought Some man paid me ten dollars for Grandpas pocket watch I got off the Trailways bus the same place I got on My head is full of mem'ries walkin' down the road to home It ain't no place for a country boy It ain't no place to be It might be fine for a city boy But it ain't no place for me It ain't no place for a country boy It ain't no place to be It might be fine for a city boy But it ain't...............FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2011)
