​Big City

This song is by The Tragically Hip.

I used to be a simple little country boy
I didn't even know the time of day
But I could see brighter lights in the city at night
I told myself I was going to stay

Big city big city well you ain't quite big enough for me

Well I used to go fishing nearly every day
I used to catch myself a trout or two
But I could see bigger fish in the city at night
Well I should know where I caught myself you

No you're not well I used to have a job but it didn't pay
I told myself that I had to quit
But I walked in that office with a gun in my hand
He said "shoot 'cause I don't give a shit"
