Down East Boy

Click Here for guitar tabs.

When the sun came up this morning it found me eastward bound
I've finally taken all I can of this city life I've found
So I'm heading back to places that I couldn't wait to leave
Cause city life's no kind of life for a down east boy like me

I've traveled west to Edmonton, been south to New Orleans
And the folks back home would not believe some places I have seen
I spent some time in Montreal out alone there on the street
Cause city life's no kind of life for a down east boy like me

I need to feel the green grass growing underneath my feet
I need to watch the sunset as I walk along the beach
I need to feel the morning breeze when it blows in from the sea
Cause city life's no kind of life for a down east boy like me

When the sun goes down on my home town I'll be only miles away
I swear this time when I get back that's where I'm going to stay
Tomorrow you will find me in my home down by the sea
Cause city life's no kind of life for a down east boy like me

I need to feel the green grass growing underneath my feet
I need to watch the sunset as I walk along the beach
I need to feel the morning breeze as it blows in from the sea
Cause city life's no kind of life for a down east boy like me

Cause city lights they shine to bright for a down east boy like me
