"Movin' Out" as written by and Joe Perry Steven Tyler....
We all live on the edge of town
Where we all live ain't a soul around
People start a-comin'
All we do is just a-grin
Said we gotta move out
'Cause the city's movin' in
I said we gotta move out
'Cause the city's movin' in

Tell me who you know
And I'll tell you who, too
Go see my friend and he'll set you free
Tell me what you see and
Maybe I can go too
No one knows the way but maybe me

Nobody goes there
Nobody shows where
Nobody knows where you can find me, yeah

Good mornin' glory, hallelujah to you
What is the story, what's been goin' through ya
Livin' like a king of the fat of the land
Workin' like a dog in a rock n' roll band

Movin', we're gettin' out
Movin', without a doubt
Movin', we're goin' far
We're movin', oh yes we are

Nobody goes there
Nobody shows where
Nobody goes where you can find me
Nobody knows there
Nobody shows where
Nobody goes where you can find me, ah
Oh, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy

Level with God
And you're in tune with the universe
Talk with yourself
And you'll hear what you wanna know
Gotta rise above
'Cause below it's only gettin' worse
Life in time
Will take you where you wanna go

Where you wanna go, where you wanna go
Where you goin'

Good mornin' glory, hallelujah to you
What is the story, what's been goin' through ya
Livin' like a king of the fat of the land
Workin' like a dog in a rock n' roll band

Movin', we're gettin' out
Movin', yeah, without a doubt
Movin', we're goin' far
We're movin', oh yes we are

Nobody knows there
Nobody shows where
Nobody goes where you can find me
Nobody knows there
Nobody shows where
Nobody goes where you can't find me
Round n' round

We all live on the edge of town
Where we all live ain't a soul around
People start a-comin'
All we do is just a-grin
We gotta move out
'Cause the city's movin' in
I said we gotta move out
'Cause the city's movin' in

Yes we do

    General CommentI had this eight track in my brand new '73 Camaro (just graduated from high school) when nobody knew who Aerosmith was. This is their best album. Came out in a time when there were SO MANY great albums.

    My InterpretationYou must appreciate a great artist when you hear them. Aerosmith is STILL around because they have ALWAYS been the real deal!
    I'm old enough to know what they are saying. They are tired of the same old, same old! Hey, I've moved on since I was 28 and kept going. See the country. Get away from the crazies. Find out where you belong. Once you do, sit back and enjoy.
    I moved from the MidWest to Florida, but soon to move to Colorado.
    Live by these lyrics, and you might find happiness if you haven't by now.
