​Big Town

This song is by Roy Brown and appears on the compilation album Good Rocking Tonight (1994).

I woke up this mornin'
Had the blues for a big town
Yes, woke up this mornin'
I had the blues for a big town

I'm tired of the country
Tired of all the people in the town

I packed my old suitcase
Told my family goodbye
Yes, packed my suitcase told my family goodbye
And my poor little wife
She broke down, she began to cry

She said big fine daddy
Please don't start runnin' wild
Oh, don't leave me daddy
Please don't start runnin' wild
And leave me all alone
Remember I'm the lover of your child

Well I hit the highway
Yes I hit that dusty trail
Yes, took the lonesome highway
Yes I hit the dusty trail
I'm goin' to big town
And I know I'll never fade

I met a head gal in big town
Boy. we really had a time
Yes, met a head gal in big town
Boy. we really had a time

Now she's gone and left me
Didn't even leave a single dime

She spent all my money
Now she don't want my kind of jive
Ooh, spent all my money
Now she don't want my kind of jive

She said I meet your kind
Every day, and every home, and every dime

I begged for a nickel
Put it in my telephone
Yes, begged for a nickel
Put it in my telephone
Gotta call my baby
Baby please, let me come back home.
