    Lyrics

    (Bill Anderson)

    To a boy who grew up walking in the woods
    And the fields of South Carolina
    This big ole city feels hard underneath my feet
    And to a kid who ain't never heard a noise
    A whole lot louder than a freight train
    I get scared sometimes just standing here along the street.

    Concrete, concrete, everywhere I turn there's concrete
    Found in the pavement day after day I wanna go home
    Where the sun shines and the tall pines
    and the earth and the heavens meet
    I'd rather starve on a poor dirt farm
    Than to stay here surrounded by the concrete
    'Cause it's turnin' me into concrete.

    My kids ain't never gone wadin' in a creek
    Or cuttin' down cane for fishing
    They've never seen a blackberry growin' wild
    Sometimes I get to missin' it so I almost take to crying
    I'm cursed with the body of a man
    And the heart of a child.

    Concrete, concrete, everywhere I turn there's concrete
    Found in the pavement day after day I wanna go home
    Where the sun shines and the tall pines
    and the earth and the heavens meet
    I'd rather starve on a poor dirt farm
    Than to stay here surrounded by the concrete
    'Cause it's turnin' me into concrete...
