Honky Cat   Elton John (#8 in 1972)

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 oh the change is gonna do me good
    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 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 folks back home well, said I was a fool
They said oh, believe in the Lord is the golden rule 
They said stay at home boy, you gotta tend the farm
Living in the city boy, is going to break your heart
But how can you stay, when your heart says no
How can you stop when your feet say go
