Chris Whitley
Wild Country

Breaking rocks all day on the avenue
Gets hard to unearth anything that's true
Soon I'm gonna' drop this jack and run
Returning to the wild where I'm from

There's miles of stone, jackhammer in my hand
There's compromises I can't comprehend
Soon I'm gonna' lose these rags and run
Returning to the wild where I'm from
Returning to the wild where I'm from

Between the bricks you'll hear the children play
The calluses get harder day by day
Between the cracks you'll notice where I've gone
Returning to the wild where I'm from
Soon I'm gonna' lose these rags and run
Returning to the wild where I'm from
Returning to the wild where I'm from
