IN THE CITY

Joe Walsh, Barry De Vorzon

Somewhere out on that horizon
Out beyond the neon lights
I know there must be something better
But there's nowhere else in sight

It's survival in the city
When you live from day to day
City streets don't have much pity
When you're down down that's where you stay
In The City. . . oh, ho . . .

I was born here in the city
With my back against the wall
Nothing grows and life ain't very pretty
No-one's there to catch you when you fall
In The City. . . oh, ho . . .

But somewhere out on that horizon
Far away from the neon sky
I know there must be something better
And I can't stay another night
In The City. . . oh, ho . . .
In The City. . . ah, haa . . .
