stuck in my apartment all day long
it’s been raining since the dawn
i miss the heat and the sunshine of back home
but home isn’t where you are

moved to the city at twenty-two
and it’s a far cry from where i was born
that’s one thing you seem to forget

cause you can take a girl to the city
and you can love her with all your heart and soul
but you can’t make up for what she’s missing
she needs more than you to be whole

but you’re my big city boy
you’ve never known anything more
you got radio waves and skyscrapers swimmin‘ in your head

but what about the blue sky?
my big city boy
come let me show you the world out there
you might be surprised at how much you like it

i wish i could make you understand
i need a little green just to get by
in this dirt poor place i’ve found no roots

so won’t you take this girl from the city
and we can drive all day down the country roads
this is the life i’m used to living
where empty space can make you whole

but you’re my big city boy
you’ve never known anything more
you got subway lines and concrete highways runnin‘ under your feet

but what about the cool grass?
my big city boy
come let me show you the world out there
you might be surprised at how much you like it

for all of my life north carolina
you’ll always be my home even though i left you
cause when the city gets me down
all i gotta do is just close my eyes
but there’s just one thing you’re missing

where’s my big city boy
you’ve never known anything more
you got convenient stores on every corner and not a moment to spare

but what about the simple life?
my big city boy
come let me show you the world out there
you might be surprised at how much you like it
