patti scialfa – city boys كلمات اغاني

Loading...

my auntie mabel
1953
left her minnesota dirt farm to see what she could see
in a letter to her mother telling her what she enjoyed
said there’s nothing in the whole wide world like a city boy
1987
took daddy’s cadillac
i drove it to chicago, never brought it back
well all these years later, i’m still unemployed
oh well there’s nothing in the whole wide world like a city boy
my granddaddy had long grey hair
silver cane and a rocking chair
tapped that cane on a wooden floor
saying “take what you’re given, and then ask for more”
well now, baby, what do you think of that
can you make a woman out of an alley cat
can you take the agitation and not get annoyed
oh well there’s nothing in the whole wide world like a city boy
now my auntie mabel, she plays the dominoes
way down south where the yucca plant grows
drinking whiskey out of coca-cola bottles, smoking viceroys
still swears there’s nothing in the whole wide world like a city boy
those city boys
