Fool For The City
(5:28)
Peverett - Knee Trembler Music - ASCAP



(Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Foghat)

Goin' to the city, got you on my mind,
Country sure is pretty, I'll leave it all behind,
This is my decision, I'm comin' home to stay this time, 'cause I'm a -

Fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city,
Fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city.

Breathin' all the clean air, sittin' in the sun,
When I get my train fare, I'll get up and run,
I'm ready for the city, air pollution here I come! 'Cause I'm a-

Fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city
Fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city

I'm like a fish out of water, I'm just a man in a hole,
The city lights turn my blues into gold.
I ain't no country boy, I'm just a homesick man,
I've gotta hit the grit just as fast as I can.

I'm tired of layin' back and hangin' around,
I'm gonna catch that train, Whoo! And I'll be city bound, Yeah!


{Rod Solo - verse, chorus}

I ain't no country boy, I'm just a homesick man,
I gotta hit the grit just as fast as I can.

I'll get off on Main street, step into the crowd,
Sidewalk under my feet, yeah, traffic's good and loud, whoa,
When I see my Inner City child, I'll be walkin' on a cloud. 'Cause I'm a-

Fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city,
Fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city.
I'm a fool, (fool for the city),
A fool for the city, (fool for the city).
I'm a fool, (fool for the city),
Fool for the city, yeah, (fool for the city).
Whoo!




Home In My Hand
(4:56)
Peverett / Price - Knee Trembler Music - ASCAP



(Alright! You havin' a good time?)
(Alright We're gonna have a good time!)

Thumbin' a ride to Geneva, standin' in the falling rain,
Gettin' dirty looks I wish I coulda' took a train.

Your friends said, "Why did you leave her?" - had to make it on my own,
Now I'm standing on the highway, tryin' to find my way alone.

Well I got my home in my hand, travelin' across the land,
Tryin' to earn a living, givin' everything I can.

It's gettin' so hard to remember, even harder to forget,
Well if I don't find a way, how I'm gonna pay my debt?

Well I got my home in my hand, travelin' across the land,
Tryin' to earn a living, givin' everything I can.
Woo!

{Rod - Slide Solo}
Slide on!

Well I got my home in my hand, travelin' across the land,
Tryin' to earn a living, givin' everything I can.

Yes, I got my home in my hand, travelin' across the land,
Tryin' to earn a living, givin' everything I can.
Tryin' to earn a living, givin' everything I can.

{Feedback}

(Home in my hand, home in my hand - Home in my hand, home in my hand)

Yes I got my home in my hand - Well I got my home, home in my hand
Yeah, you know I'm travelin' across the land - Yes I've got my home in my hand
Well I got my, (home in my hand) - Yes I got my, (home in my hand) whoo
I'm tryin' to earn a living, givin' everything I can - (travelin' across the land)

Home in my hand, home in my hand, yea-ee-yea
Home in my hand, woo hoo hoo - Home in my hand, yea

Give her the gun, drive like a hurricane.

Speedin' along like a bullet from a gun,
It's a three day ride, gonna make it in one.

The heat's up high, turn the radio on,
Diggin' rock and roll music while we're ridin' along.

Road fever, fire burnin' in my brain,
Give her the gun, drive like a hurricane.

Live


"Foghat Live (1977), produced by Nick Jameson, captured the band at the height of their Boogie Monster phase. From the bombastic intro to "Fool For The City" to the drawn-out treatment of "Slow Ride," the album found them playing the roll to the hilt. The album's version of "I Just Want To Make Love To You" was released as a single and reached #33 in the U.S. "Foghat Live" went on to earn double platinum status. "I thought a live album would do well," says Peverett. "It pushed us even further. That was as big as we ever got."
