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 '62 'til the coal ran out and a dry came through
When they damned the river, we all used to fish
Population 4O5 and I'm 84 O419, I left a city limit sign layin' in the ditch
Run blown over it, deep in metropolis
Well, I found myself in a big high rise with a concrete yard
It ain't safe after dark, guess, this ol' boy drove too far
Met a girl fell in love, got married and she's due in May
Say's, we're gonna need more space by sayin' I know just the place
Where we can walk down to the country store
And we won't even have to lock our doors
And you can still get air and water there for free
She says, "That sounds good to me"
It was a boom town back in '62 'til the coal ran out and a dry came through
And they damned the river, we all used to fish
Population 4O4 and when we pull in it'll be 3 more
And there's a city limit sign, layin' in the ditch
That I need to fix, back in metropolis
Almost in metropolis
Comin' up on metropolis
I'm back in metropolis
