      About "A Million Miles To The City"

      Lyrics for Tom T. Hall - "A Million Miles To The City"

      Yeah, I remember it now, we were kids back then livin' down on the farm
      We were told that the city could only bring us harm
      "How far is the city?" somebody said, and "oh, that's a great big town."
      Barbara said, "why, it's a million miles," and the story got around

      [Chorus:]
      It's a million miles to the city
      From the hills and valleys we know
      It's a million miles to the city
      And someday we all want to go

      There was a town nearby, but a town is a town, and a city...well, that's
      Something else
      Our daddy had been to a city but he never was much help

      "Why the buildings are taller than oak trees." ah, but we knew better than that
      Ain't nobody could climb that high, the cities were wide and flat

      [Chorus]
      Well now time has passed and we have grown and traveled far and wide
      The cities have changed the kids we were, we see it in each others eyes
      But I'd love to go back to those hills again, to the boy I used to be
      Where the leaves and the wind and the whippoorwills were part of the land like me

      [Chorus x2]
