"Big City Lights" as written by and Jimmy Reed....
Bright lights, big city
Gone to my baby's head
Bright lights, big city
Gone to my baby's head

I'd tried to tell the woman
But she doesn't believe a word I said
Go light pretty baby
Gonna need my help some day
It's all right pretty baby
Gonna need my help some day

You're gonna wish you listened
To some of those things I said

Go ahead pretty baby
Oh, honey knock yourself out
Go ahead pretty baby
Oh honey knock yourself out

I still love you baby
Cause you don't know what it's all about

Bright lights, big city
Gone to my baby's head
Bright lights, big city
Gone to my baby's head

    General CommentVerse 1:
    "Theres a STREET SIGN ON A lamp post where we used to hang
    Its on the corner of LOVE AND TRUST
    Down by the river bank
    Somehow we lost our way on the DARK END OF street"

    Chorus:
    "TO SAVE somebody else THAT couldn't save themself
    Big city lights don't shine for me no more"

    Verse 2:
    "If you ever come to our town,
    DON'T GO where Angel plays,
    You know she'll take you under her wing,
    then she'll just fly away,
    Just like she broke the heart of EVERY BOY FROM LOVE AND TRUST"


    That is what I make of it. I agree though, it is hard to hear what they're saying. But this is the best I got.
    This is also available on Itunes everyone. From one of their EP's, if not their only one.
