Million Miles To The City Lyrics

(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 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.

--- Instrumental ---

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 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...
