A MILLION MILES TO THE CITY Tom T. Hall I remember it now we were kids back then living down on the farm We were told that the city could only bring us harm Well how far away is the city you know that's a great big town And Barbara said why it's a million miles and then the story got around It's a million miles to the city from the hills and valleys we know It's a million miles to the city and some day we all wanna go There was a town nearby but a town is a town and a city that's somethin' else Our daddy had been to a city but he never was much help The buildings're taller than oak trees ah but we knew better than that Cause ain't nobody could climb that high the city was wide and flat It's a million miles... The years have passed and we have grown and traveled far and wide The cities have changed the kids we were we see it in each other's eyes Lord I'd love to go back to those hills again to the boy I used to be Where the leaves in the wind and the whippoorwills Were all just a part of the land like me It's a million miles...
