Movin' Out

Aerosmith





~~*~~





We all live on the edge of town

Where we all live ain't a soul around

People start a-comin', all we do is just a-grin

Said we gotta move it out 'cause the city's movin' in

I said we gotta move it out 'cause the city's movin' in


Tell me who you know, and I'll tell ya who to

Go see my friend he'll set you free

Tell me what you need and maybe I can go too

No one knows the way but maybe me

Nobody goes there, nobody shows there

Nobody knows where you can find me


Good mornin' glory! Allelujah to ya!

What's the story?

And what's been goin' through ya?

Livin' like a king off the fat of the land

Workin like a dog in a rock and roll band


We're movin'--we're gettin' out

We're movin', without a doubt

We're movin'--we're goin' far

We're movin', oh yes we are

'Cause nobody goes there, nobody shows there

Nobody knows where you can find me

Nobody knows there, nobody shows there

Nobody knows where you can find me


Level with God and you're in tune with the universe

Talk with yourself and you'll hear what you wanna know

Gotta rise above 'cause below it's only gettin' worse

Life in time will take you where you wanna go


Yeah ... where you wanna go

Where ya wanna go

Where ya goin'?

Where ya goin'?

Where ya goin'?


Good mornin' glory! Allelujah to ya!

What's the story?

And what's been goin' through ya?

Livin' like a king off the fat of the land

Workin' like a dog in a rock and roll band


We're movin', we're getting out

We're movin', without a doubt

We're movin', we're goin' far

We're movin', oh yes we are


Nobody knows where, nobody shows where

Nobody knows where you can find me

Nobody knows where, nobody shows where

Nobody knows where you can find me


Well down and down round and round and better catch your mama

so you know nowhere i'm goin'


We all live on the edge of town

Where we all live ain't a soul around

People start a' comin', all we do is just a-grin

Said we gotta move it out 'cause the city's movin' in

I said we gotta move it out 'cause the city's movin' in

No one in rock n' roll puts the gr in gritty like Aerosmith.

Modern-day metal bands can only wish to sound this badass.

Some come close; but no one has succeeded.


I have been a fan of this song since I was 14 clear back in 1976.

Back then I listened to it on an 8-track cassette player,

thinking that the very height of humanity's possible technical

prowess when it came to sound quality.

It was even like a boom-box; I could carry it around!

It had its own shoulder strap!


I count Aerosmith as one of my personal Kings of Rock.

I grew up listening to their debut album,

which this song is part of,

then Toys in the Attic,

and then Rocks

virtually every single day.

There are only a couple of other groups

from that time that I was so devoted to.
