Going Back West [Remix 1999]
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 Well 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.
