    Lyrics

    (Bob McDill)

    Well, I grew up wild and free
    Walkin' these fields in my bare feet
    There wasn't no place I couldn't go
    With a twenty-two rifle and a fishing pole.

    Chorus:
    Well, I live in the city but don't fit in
    You know its a pity the shape I'm in
    Well, I got no home and I got no choice
    Oh Lord, have mercy on a country boy.

    --- Instrumental ---

    When I was young I remember well
    I'd hunt the wild turkey and the bob-white quail
    The river was clear and deep back then
    And fishin' lines tied to the willow limb.

    Chorus:
    Well, I live in the city but don't fit in
    You know its a pity the shape I'm in
    Well, I got no home and I got no choice
    Oh Lord, have mercy on a country boy.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Well, they dammed the river, they dammed the stream
    They cut down the cypress and the sweet gum trees
    There's a laundra' mat and a barber shop
    And now the whole meadow is a parkin' lot.

    Chorus:
    Well, I live in the city but don't fit in
    You know its a pity the shape I'm in
    Well, I got no home and I got no choice
    Oh Lord, have mercy on a country boy...
