Mel Tillis – Stateside lyrics

Well the Japanese moon is bright tonight and Tokyo is full of life
Busy people everywhere but busy people just don't care
I wanna go stateside oh Lord I wanna go stateside
In and out the honky tonks but nothing's there I really want
Sat awhile then looked around, get up and leave and walk the town
I wanna go stateside oh Lord I wanna go stateside

[ instrumental ]

The geisha girls don't understand the lonely life of a service man
When his heart is far away to a girl in the USA
I wanna go stateside oh Lord I wanna go stateside
I've heard say a man don't cry but I can't keep my blue eyes dry
I've been here about two years, I know I've cried a million tears
I wanna go stateside oh Lord I wanna go stateside
Oh Lord I wanna go stateside

( Music fades out )
