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

Going back west
Yes, I know, I'll make it alright
Goin' back west
Where my music's playing all night
Goin' back west
Goin' back west, I think I do 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
Goin' back west
Where my music's playing all night
Goin' back west
Goin' back west, I think I do alright

Going back west
Going back west, going back west, going back west
