TOO DUMB FOR NEW YORK CITY (Waylon Jennings / Basil McDavid) Waylon Jennings - 1992 When i first saw New York city I was green down to the core You could see my red neck glowing For a mile or maybe more Between the hustlers and the hookers I must have made their day 'Cause they peeled me like an apple, Lawd And sent me on my way When you're pushed and shoved and almost mugged It ain't no place to be So I came to one conclusion New York ain't for me From sea to shining sea And coast to coast Somewhere in the middle Is the land I love the most I ain't California pretty I can't survive the Great White Way I'm too dumb for New York city And too ugly for L.A. I made my way to Tinseltown To Hollywood and Vine Out among those pretty faces I'd surely find a place for mine The way I walk, the way I talk They'll hang on every word But don't call me,i'll call you Was all I ever heard In L.A. what they're thinking Ain't what they talk about At least in New York city There's never any doubt From sea to shining sea And coast to coast Somewhere in the middle Is the land I love the most I ain't California pretty I can't survive the Great White Way I'm too dumb for New York city And too ugly for L.A. I'm too dumb for New York city And too ugly for L.A.
