I was born and raised in the Ghetto
Talk with me and you know.
I wasn't satisfied with living on this side

I started looking around for a possibility
Listen to my story of what became of me.
I met a business man who said he'd got some friends back eas
So why don't you come along
We can help you at least.
So make you into a big star by playing your guitar.
But the joke was on me
They left me flat
You see.
Goin' back West yes I know I'll make it alright.
Goin' back West where my music's playing aU. night.
Goin' back West I think I do alright.
Goin' back West yes I know I'll make it alright
Strugglin' for recognition
Identity and respect

I got a lot of promises they told me not to fret. 
Said we will stand by you if the goin' gets rough

But when I started thinking they didn't even bluff.
But a year has come and gone
They left me standing here
Thinking how it could have been

'Cause still I ain't nowhere.
They surely took me for a ride
trampled on my pride
But I hold my head up high
got no more tears to cry.
Going back West yes I know I'll make it alright 
Going back West yes I know I'll make it alright.
