Big City (Turn Me Loose)
recorded by Merle Haggard
Written by Merle Haggard and Dean Holloway

I'm tired of this dirty old city
C G7
Entirely too much work and never enough play
And I'm tired of these dirty old sidewalks
C G7 C
Think I'll walk off my steady job today

Turn me loose set me free somewhere in the middle of Montana
Gimme all I got coming to me
And keep your retirement and your so called social security
G7 C
Big City turn me loose and set me free

Been working everyday since I was twenty
C G7
Haven't got a thing to show for anything I've done
There's folks who never work and they've got plenty
C G7 C
Think it's time some guys like me had some fun

repeat #2
