Well the ugliest, bitterest, coldest, dreary place I've ever seen
Dwells and sprawls and honks and calls and towers over me
It makes me wanna howl, it makes you wanna scream
The ugliest, bitterest, coldest, dreary place I've ever seen.

Oh but some of the people living here keep so alive and free
And oh the place I'm singin' 'bout, it's called the big city
I sing it in the streets, and I sing it in the bars
The folks that never get to hear it are the ones inside their cars

Well I guess that's kind of like poetic justice on that road
I breathe exhaust and pay the cost but they'll never ever know
About this... [Yodels.]

Well the ugliest, bitterest, coldest, dreary place I've ever seen
It's got me down and lonesome blue I don't know what I'll do
It often makes me sigh, and on occasion makes me cry
The ugliest, bitterest, coldest, dreary place I've ever seen.

Right now I know just what some of you's here tonight are thinking of
This stupid guy with a dumb guitar should pack right up and shove... Off.

But, well, the stupid guy I've seen him leave just a little while ago
These words he said to me, "Will you please finish up my show?"
My heart is oh so weary, from singing all day long
The ugliest, bitterest, coldest, dreary swinging cowboy song.

And it's got this... [Yodels.]

Well the ugliest, bitterest, coldest, dreary place I've ever seen
Dwells and sprawls and honks and calls and towers over me
Well it makes me wanna howl, it makes you wanna scream
The ugliest, bitterest, coldest, dreary place we've ever seen.

Oh but some of the people living here keep so alive and free
You know the place I'm singin' 'bout, it's called the big city
When I sing it in the streets, and I sing it in the bars
The folks that never get to hear it are the ones inside their cars

Well I guess that's kind of like poetic justice on that road
I breathe exhaust and pay the cost but they'll never ever know
About this... [Yodels.]
