West Coast Kid [*]
by tobyMac



Yo I'm a west coast kid livin' in Nashville
And I'm a east coast kid livin' in Nashville
Yo I'm a west coast kid
And I'm a east coast kid
Yo I'm a west coast east coast west coast east coast

Yo I'm a west coast kid livin' in Nashville
Moved here in the summer when I got my record deal
Plan to make a mill but I've only sold a thousand
So I relocated to low income housing
I'm all about singing the blues take a walk in my shoes
You can see my point of view
Country folk on the back porch pickin' banjos
Grams and gramps are bustin' a move with the dosey doe's

[Chorus]
It's all hip-hop to me yea (it's all hip hop to me it's all hip-hop to me)
It's all hip-hop to me alright (it's all hip-hop to me it's all hip-hop to me)
It's all hip-hop to me I'm a grab my guitar( it's all hip hop to me it's all hip-hop to me)
It's all hip-hop to me so tight (it's all hip hop to me it's all hip-hop to me)

And I'm a grab my guitar and play you this song
And all the people come on now and sing along
West coast kid living in Nashville moved here in the summer when I got my
Record deal

And I'm a east coast kid livin' in Nashville moved here in the winter when I
Got my record deal
Started with some vinyl and a mic in dc
Suburban little punk with an urban degree
I'm all about makin' some noise and givin' people a choice
Long as I'm hearin' God's voice
All my folk on the back porch truth, me and Moses
Mandy, Marley ain't it sweet how it grows us

[Chorus]

My mother used to sing me rhymes (sing me rhymes) when she put me to sleep
(c'mon)
I wonder if she realized she was sowing seeds (sowing seeds)
And now there growing growin' growing to the sky (to the sky)
And now I'm flowin' flowing (flowin') flowing on this mic
It's all hip-hop to me

bridge
What you want what you want what you want what you want what you need
It's all hip-hop to me
What you want what you want what you want what you want what you need

Moved here in the summer when I got my record deal

Moved here in the winter when I got my record deal

chorus

bgv chorus
Free your mind and free your soul listen to the rhyme in stereo
Turn the music up so that you can hear a sweet sound coming down loud and clear
Make a simple melody and we lay it down put it all together make a brand new sound
Maybe it's a symphony or maybe just a melody it really doesn't matter 'cause

chorus
