Got tired of livin' in that one horse town
When to that station flagged that hummingbird down
I didn't even call to say goodbye
I couldn't stand to see that little girl cry
And now I'm off to the city gonna make my name
Those lights were callin' me to fortune and fame

I had to ride that hummingbird
Just let me ride that hummingbird

I'm gonna make it now just any day
I've got my guitar and I came to play
Lyin' here lonely knowin' what I lost
My heart keeps asking was it worth the cost
And now, ain't it funny how that always seems
Once you're standing there, the grass ain't so green

I had to ride that hummingbird
Why did I ride that hummingbird

Oh today she called me on the telephone
She said, "Hey country boy, you been gone too long"
And now I'm standin' at the station looking down the line
Here comes that hummingbird, she's right on time

I'm gonna ride that hummingbird
Just let me ride that hummingbird
I'm gonna ride, just let me ride that hummingbird
