Metropolis

Well they finally put that red light up in the heart of town
Took the stop sign down, it was shot up anyhow
One night I ran right through it, in my Chevrolet
Both police cars came, but I got away

It was a boom town back in Â'62
Till the coal ran out and the drought came though
And they dammed the river that we all use to fish
Population 405 and I made it 404 one night
Left the city limit sign laying in the ditch
Run plum over it
Leaving Metropolis

Well I found myself in a big high rise with a concrete yard
Ain't safe after dark, guess this old boy drove too far
Met a girl, fell in love, got married and she's due in May

Says we're gonna need more space, I said I know just the place
Where we can walk down to the country store and we won't even have to lock our door
And we can still get air and water there for free
She said, Â"That sounds good to me.Â"

It was a boom town back in Â'62
Till the coal ran out and the drought came though
And they dammed the river that we all use to fish
Population 404 and when we pull in it'll be three more
And there's a city limit sign laying in the ditch
That I need to fix
Back in Metropolis

Almost in Metropolis
Coming up on Metropolis
I'm back in Metropolis
