Lyrics

Lost In The City © 2005 Christy D. Howard and Jeffrey L. Howard

I'm a country girl in the city
Trying to find my way back home, oooooh
I'm a country girl in the city
Trying to find my way back home
I'm lost in the city
Now I want to go home

I moved to the city
Trying to get my name in lights
I moved to the city
Trying to get my name in lights
Went kind of wild
Trying to live a different life

I'm callin' mama and daddy to bring me home

Guitar solo

I'm living in the city
Livin' here all alone, ooooh
I'm living in the city
Livin' here all alone
I'm a country girl
Trying to find my way home

I'm callin' mama and daddy to bring me home

Breakdown - fiddle solo

I want to see all those boys
Sittin' out on the porch, ooooh
I want to see all those country boys
Watchin' cars go by
They're chewin' tobacco
And talkin' about days gone by

I'm callin' mama and daddy to bring me home

I woke up from a bad dream
I dreamed that I was lost, oooooh
I woke up from a bad dream
I dreamed that I was lost
I'd moved to the city
Couldn't find my way home

I'm callin' mama and daddy to bring me home
I'm callin' mama and daddy to bring me home

Breakdown - Guitar solo; end
