BIG CITY (Haggard - Holloway)
Performed by Merle Haggard (1982)


|E |E |A |A |E |E |B |B |E |E |


    E                        A
I'm tired of this dirty old city
   E                                      B
Entirely too much work and never enough play
       E                        A
And I'm tired of these dirty old sidewalks
          E            B              E
Think I'll walk off my steady job today


         E                     A                          E
Turn me loose, set me free somewhere in the middle of Montana
                                   B
And give me all I've got coming to me
     E                           A                    E
And keep your retirement and your so called social security
                  B                E
Big city turn me loose and set me free


|E |E |A |A |E |E |B |B |E |E |


       E                            A
Been working everyday since I was twenty
       E                                       B
Haven't got a thing to show for anything I've done
         E                                  A
There's folks who never work and they've got plenty
            E                  B            E
Think it's time some guys like me had some fun


         E                     A                          E
Turn me loose, set me free somewhere in the middle of Montana
                                   B
And give me all I've got coming to me
     E                           A                    E
And keep your retirement and your so called social security
                  B                E
Big city turn me loose and set me free
                  B                E
Big city turn me loose and set me free
