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
And better get back to the woods"
Well I quit those days and my redneck ways
And oh, oh change is gonna do me good

You better get back honky cat
Living in the city aint where its at
Its like trying to find gold in a silver mine
Its like trying to drink whiskey, 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 folks back home well, said, "I was a fool"
And 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, 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 a, oh change is gonna do me good

They said, "Stay at home, boy you gotta tend the farm"
Living in the city boy is, is going to break your heart
But how can you stay when your heart says no
How, how can you stop when your feet say go

You better get back honky cat
Better get back to the woods
Well I quit those days and my redneck ways
And a, oh the change is gonna do me good

You better get back honky cat
Living in the city aint where its at
Its like trying to find gold in a silver mine
Its like trying to drink whiskey, oh from a bottle of wine

Oh yeah, get back honky cat, get back honky cat, get back
Get back honky cat, get back honky cat, get back
Oh get back well honky cat, get back, get back honky cat, oh yeah
