She was just a country girl
Didn't have those New York City ways
When she hopped a bus in Ohio
Headin' for the crowded streets where no one says a word

She was just a country girl living in the lonely city
Met a man who learned her name
She became a woman on a rainy New York night

There's a new day dawnin' in the city
She calls her Mama collect
Sayin' Mama send bus fare back to Ohio
Have somebody meet me at the depot

She was just a country girl
Spent some time in New York City
Now she tells her friends about lonely New York City
And her lonely New York night

There's a new day dawnin' in the city
She calls her Mama collect
Sayin' Mama send bus fare back to Ohio
Have somebody meet me at the depot

She was just a country girl
She was just a country girl
