I have fallen with the sun in the valley for the last time.
There’s a boy, he lives in the city; gonna drop him a line
Saying pick me up from that 8:15 next Sunday morning.
The mistakes I’ve made cannot follow me
A sin in the city don’t mean nothing.

I remember when they found my brother on the county line.
The trouble he knows weighs heavy on my troubled mind.
And Momma, she still waits for him to come back around.
But I know for a fact, there ain’t no coming back
From the needle to this town.

They say the city lights are so bright you don’t have to sleep.
And it’s the kind of world where a working girl can get a bite to eat.
But Daddy said don’t take nothing, ‘cause nothing is free.
But it’s easy to to see the price he paid
For taking care of me.
