Chris Whitley — Wild Country lyrics

Breaking rocks all day on the avenue
Its hard to unearth anything that's true
Soon I am gonna drop this jack and run
Return into the wild where I'm from

There's miles of stone, jack hammer in my hand
There's compromises, I can't comprehend
Soon I am gonna lose these rags and run
Return into the wild where I'm from
Return into the wild where I'm from

Between the bricks you'll hear the children play
Their callouses get harder day by day
Between the cracks you'll notice where I've gone
Returning to the wild, where I'm from

Soon I am gonna lose these rags and run
Returning to the wild, where I'm from
Returning to the wild, where I'm from
