"Big City" lyrics - THE PRETTY THINGS

"Big City"

Well I used to be simple living countryboy
Didn't even know the time of day
Till I bought a ticket on a southboundtrain
Got my blues, I was going to stay

Big city, big city,
Well you ain't quite big enough for me

I used to go out fishing on a sunny day
Catch myself a child or two
But there are bigger fish in a city pool
I should know 'cause I got myself you

Big city, big city,
Yeah you ain't quite big enough for me

I soon forgot the faith my mother told me
I being good in everything
For there are things in the city design
'Cause I know why women roll of the die
