Backwoods Boy

(Jim Bradford)

Back Woods Boy Up in mountains In your neck of the woods It’s a rare thing to find beauty From Hollywood She's lost and you save her And she decides to own ya And you follow her down To Southern California Back woods boy Didn't they warn ya What would you do With a girl from Sunny California? In LA the roads are too big And the air is spooky And she rolls her eyes at you Nick names you Goofy Your love letters Make clever conversation Among the girls With negative connotation Back woods boy I got to warn you What would you do With a girl from Sunny California? Come home sweetheart Mama implores ya On the telephone From Koocanusa Pack your bags Get them on the Greyhound With your tail between your legs You are homebound A couple years later From your double wide trailer You see her on the TV And grab your inhaler In a moment of clarity You finally see The difference between What dreams and reality Back woods boy I gotta warn ya What would you do With a girl from Sunny California?
