G
I was born and raised in the ghetto

Talk with me and you'll know
C                                      G
I wasn't satisfied with living on the side
                                         C
I started looking around for a possibility
                     G  D                   G
But listen to my story,   of what became of me

G
I met a businessman

Who said he got some friends back East
C
Said, "Why don't you come along?
                           G
Well we could help you atleast"

"Make you into a big star
                    C
By playing your guitar" 
                    G
But the joke was on me
D                       G  G7
 They left me flat to see

              D
Going back West (Going back West)
       C                     G
Yes I know, I'll make out alright
              D
Going back West (Going back West)
          C                  G
Where my music's playing all night
              C                 D
Going back West (Going back West)
                G
Think I'll do alright

G
Struggling for recognition, identity and respect
C                                             G
I got a lot of promises, they told me not to fret

Said, "We will stand by you
                   C
If the going gets rough"
                      G
But when I started sinking
D                   G    G7
 They didn't even bluff

                    D
Going back West (Going back West)
       C                     G
Yes I know, I'll make out alright
              D
Going back West (Going back West)
          C                  G
Where my music's playing all night
              C                 D
Going back West (Going back West)
                G
Think I'll do alright

(+ 1/2 Tom)
G#
'Bout a year has come and gone

And left me standing here
C#
Thinking how it could have been
                        G#
'Cause still I ain't nowhere

They surely took me for a ride
                C#
Trampled on my pride
                          G#
But I'll hold my head up high
D#                      G#  G#7
  Got no more tears to cry

              D#
Going back West (Going back West)
       C#                    G#
Yes I know, I'll make out alright
            D#
Going back West (Going back West)
         C#                   G#
Where my music's playing all night
              C#               D#
Going back West (Going back West)
                G#
Think I'll do alright
