I Don't Wanna Go To Arkansas

from by The Federales

lyrics

When I was 23 years old
I spent three days in Arkansas in May
Now with the benefit of hindsight
There's only one thing I gotta say

I don't wanna go to Arkansas again
Too many strip malls and not enough sin
Too many Walmarts and not enough girls
But at least on the radio they still play Willie and Merle

Now I suppose I should be reasonable
I suppose I should be fair
I've found it's much worse in Kentucky where they yell
"Boy, you should cut that hair"

But, I don't wanna go to Arkansas again
Too many strip malls and not enough sin
Too many Walmarts and not enough girls
But at least on the radio they still play Willie and Merle

Well, all the nice people there
That's really the story I should tell
But it's hard to come home with real good stories
When you’re scared to leave your hotel

That's why I don't wanna go to Arkansas again
Too many strip malls and not enough sin
Too many Walmarts and not enough girls
But at least on the radio they still play Willie and Merle

about

The Federales Minneapolis, Minnesota

Classic country for the modern world. We're not from the Black Hills, the Texas Panhandle, or Appalachia. We're from the Twin Cities. Damn proud of it, too, but we play country music, because it's one of America's native languages. We're pickers, fiddlers, groovers, and harmonizers. We're ready to make you sing along, get up and dance, or just sit and tap your toes. We're The Federales. ... more
