Waylon Jennings – Too Dumb For New York lyrics

Verse 1:
D
When i first saw New York city
I was green down to the core
You could see my red neck glowing
For a mile or maybe more
A
Between the hustlers and the hookers
I must have made their day
Cause they peeled me like an apple,Lawd
D
And sent me on my way
Bridge 1:
When you're pushed and shoved and almost mugged
It ain't no place to be
So i came to one conclusion
A
New York ain't for me
Chorus:
D
From sea to shining sea
And coast to coast
Somewhere in the middle
Is the land i love the most
A
I ain't California pretty
I can't survive the Great White Way
I'm too dumb for New York city
D
And too ugly for L.A.
Verse 2:
I made my way to Tinseltown
To Hollywood and Vine
Out among those pretty faces
I'd surely find a place for mine
A
The way i walk-the way i talk
They'll hang on every word
But don't call me,i'll call you
D
Was all i ever heard
Bridge 2:
In L.A. what they're thinking

Ain't what they talk about
At least in New York city
A
There's never any doubt
Chorus.
A
I'm too dumb for New York city
D
And too ugly for L.A.
