Well I live down in a valley
Was prettiest around
Living in an alley in the middle of downtown
And I didn't have to move
To this big city
You know I stayed right in my country home
They built it all around me
I used to love these hills they flattened
For that highway 4-lanes wide
They're making a Manhattan
Out of my countryside

Ain't no use in crying much
You don't know what I'd do
To go back to them woods
They turned Hardee's #2
Well if I had a dollar for every tree cut down
You know I'd buy out all these businessmen
Cut down this whole town
I used to love these hills they flattened
For that highway 4-lanes wide
They're making a Manhattan
Out of my countryside

Them motels on the horizon
Really caught me by surprise
Who has been advising all these
Enterprising guys
I ain't got to promise
But it hurts me some to say
I was here 'fore they was
They're driving me away
I used to love these hills they flattened
For that highway 4-lanes wide
They're making a Manhattan
Out of my countryside
