Lyrics

When I look back Boy, I must have been green Bopping in the country Fishing in a stream Looking for an answer Trying to find a sign Until I saw your city lights Honey, I was blind They said get back honky cat Better get back to the woods Well, I quit those days And my redneck ways And, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm Oh, change is gonna do me good You better get back, honky cat Living in the city Ain't where it's at You better get back, honky cat Living in the city ain't where it's at It's like trying to find gold in a silver mine It's like trying to drink whisky oh, from a bottle of wine Well, I read some books And I read some magazines About those high class ladies Down in New Orleans And all the fools back home Well, said I was a fool They said oh, believe in the Lord Is the golden rule They said get back, honky cat Better get back to the woods Well, I quit those days And my redneck ways And, ooh hoo, hoo, hoo Oh, change is gonna do me good They said get back, honky cat Better get back to the woods Well, I quit those days And my redneck ways And, oh huh, huh, huh Oh, change is gonna do me good
