Big City  Merle Haggard

BIG CITY (Haggard - Holloway)
Performed by Merle Haggard (1982)
|E |E |A |A |E |E |B |B |E |E |
I'm [E]tired of this dirty old c[A]ity
Ent[E]irely too much work and never enough pl[B]ay
And I'm[E] tired of these dirty old[A] sidewalks
Think I'll[E] walk off my [B]steady job toda[E]y
Turn me l[E]oose, set me free some[A]where in the middle of Mont[E]ana
And give me all I've got coming to [B]me
And k[E]eep your retirement and your[A] so called social sec[E]urity
Big city turn me l[B]oose and set me f[E]ree
|E |E |A |A |E |E |B |B |E |E |
Been wo[E]rking everyday since I was tw[A]enty
Haven't[E] got a thing to show for anything I've d[B]one
There's f[E]olks who never work and they've got[A] plenty
Think it's t[E]ime some guys like [B]me had some f[E]un
Turn me l[E]oose, set me free some[A]where in the middle of Mont[E]ana
And give me all I've got coming to [B]me
And k[E]eep your retirement and your[A] so called social sec[E]urity
Big city turn me l[B]oose and set me f[E]ree
Big city turn me l[B]oose and set me f[E]ree
