Ain't going to the city again
I don't like the fickle lights
Of Nashville & New Orleans
I won't pause for the empty promises
of New York & LA
& I don't care for the nasty stares
From Portland Oregon to Portland Maine
I ain't going to the city again

Ain't gonna fill up my glass
It's gonna take all of my strength
To rip this monkey off my back
But I won't wake with the shakes
Or vomiting black
& it's no nights of alley lights
Looking for glitter & skag
I left them days far off in the past

Maybe it's my age or how the times have changed
But I'm rooting out everything that used to give me pain
Now I'm all alone & I don't mind it at all
Cause there'll be no one else to blame when I fall

Won't give you my heart anymore
Toe to toe & blow for blow
Until we've evened the score
I know I had to let you go
When you looked me in the eye
& asked why I didn't love you
& I gave no reply
Just turned my back & that was my goodbye
