    "The City" Lyrics

    Marty Robbins

    Three years ago she left me in the valley
    Said, the city life was what she wanted more
    She said, life in the valley was to simple
    Excitement was what she wanted more

    She said, she'd be important in the city
    Didn't she know how important she was here
    For three years now I watched alone and waited
    Somethin' told me that I would see her once again

    Today I'm gonna drive down to the station
    And I'll pick her up and bring her home at last

    So often I've said that I'd forgive her
    For anything that's happened in the past

    Last week I got a letter from the city
    Sayin' they were going to send me what was mine
    She's commin' back to stay here in the valley
    She's returning in a simple box of pine

    I guess I'll take a ride by the river
    Even though my heart would break
    And I'll give her flowers like I used to give her
    We're together once again for old time's sake

    Oh, she never was important in the city
    Just a girl whose lucky star will never shine
    But she's commin' back to stay here in the valley
    She's returning in a simple box of pine
