LAST PLACE I WANNA BE

Written By: Carol Coffey

LAST PLACE I WANNA BE

Verse
It was a hot ole dusty Sunday
My buddy said he’d drive
My mama and my daddy
Made me promise I would write
I knew life would be better
As we left our town in dust
My buddy winked when I said
I think I speak for us

Chorus
That’s the LAST PLACE I WANNA BE
My town of 95, now 93
Forty miles from nowhere, as far as you can see
That’s the LAST PLACE I WANNA BE

Verse
We pulled in short of daybreak
After two days on the road
It took most our savings
To pay that highway toll
The parking lot attendant
Said “how far you farm boys come?”
With a stiff upper lip I added
When I told him where we’re from

Chorus

Bridge
Now, I find the grass ain’t greener
There ain’t no pot of gold
If I ever get off this assembly line
I’m gonna head myself straight home

Last Chorus
That’s the LAST PLACE I WANNA BE
Last count 82, soon 83
Forty miles from nowhere, but, it don’t matter to me
That’s the LAST PLACE I WANNA BE

Tag
It’s like nowhere else, and that’s all right by me
That’s the LAST PLACE I WANNA BE
