Asleep At The Wheel
"Your Down Home Is Uptown" lyrics

Your Down Home Is Uptown

Well, they took you out of the country, honey
In a big old fancy car
And it wasn't nearly overnight
But you became a star

And that sweet march song you wrote me
Well, it just hit number two
Your down home is uptown, boy
The country's outta you

Well, I just read in the paper, honey
How you made the Hall of Fame
And I've seen you on the TV
With cute Miss What's-Her-Name

Well, all your fame and fortune does
Is tearing my heart in two
Your down home is uptown, boy
The country's outta you

Uptown
Where the lights are bright
And the girls' mind changes
Every night
Uptown
It's a different world
And you forget
All about
Your down home girl

Now when the kids come home
From school they ask
"Is daddy home?"
And it's hard to face the priecher when
He calls up on the phone

To try and understand your life
Is more than I can do
Your down home is uptown, boy
The country's outta you

Well, uptown
Where the lights are bright
And the girls' mind changes
Every night
Uptown
It's a different world
And you forget
All about
Your down home girl
