It's a city life I've led
G em
My pasture was a street

I've never climbed a tree
G d
But that's all right with me
G d
'cause I'm a city boy

I'm just a city boy
Born and raised
From these rooftops I have gazed
Where the grass was made of steel
I've never plowed a field
Until the pavement starts to peel
I'll be a city boy

I'm just a city boy
Born and grown
That's all I've ever known
Where the lights would greet the dawn
There's a factory for a farm
Sure the city has it's charm
When you're a city boy /pre>
