John Fogerty – Back In The Hills lyrics

This old push-and-shovin' city life, lord, had really got me down.
I'm goin' back and leaving here tonight, get my feet on the ground.

Chorus:
I'm goin back (back to the hills), I'm goin back (back to the hills),
Goin' back (back to the hills) tonight (back to the hills).
I'm goin back (back to the hills), I'm goin back (back to the hills),
Goin' back (back to the hills) tonight (back to the hills).

My time is done for livin' on the run, and the money making schemes,
Feelin' success and takin' all the rest, empty hearts and shattered dreams.

Chorus
Oo-oo-oooh!
Oo-oo-oooh!

Back (I'm goin' back to the), back (I'm goin' back to the),
Back (I'm goin' back to the), tonight! (I'm goin' back to the)
Back (I'm goin' back to the), back (I'm goin' back to the),
Back (I'm goin' back to the), tonight! (I'm goin' back to the)

Chorus

Tell your pa I'm gonna leave it all, he won't be seeing me around,
And if you like, just come along tonight, get your feet on the ground.

Chorus

I'm goin' back! (I'm goin' back to the)... Etc.
