When the sun came up this morning
it found me eastward bound,
Finally taken all I can
of this city life I've found;
So I'm heading back to places
that I couldn't wait to leave,
City life's no kind of life
for a down east boy like me.

I've traveled west to Edmonton,
been south to New Orleans,
And the folks back home would not believe
some places I have seen;
I spent some time in Montreal,
was alone there on the street,
'cause city life's no kind of life
for a down east boy like me.

I need to feel the green grass
growing underneath my feet,
I need to watch the sunset
as I walk along the beach;
I need to feel the morning breeze
when it blows in from the sea,
A city life's no kind of life
for a down east boy like me.

When the sun goes down on my hometown
I'll be only miles away,
I swear this time when I get back
that's where I'm gonna stay;
Tomorrow you will find me
in my home down by the sea,
A city life's no kind of life
for a down east boy like me.

I need to feel the green grass
growing underneath my feet,
I need to watch the sunset
as I walk along the beach;
I need to feel the morning breeze
when it blows in from the sea,
A city life's no kind of life
for a down east boy like me.

Those city lights they shine too bright
for a down east boy like me.
