"I've Been To Town" lyrics - EDDY ARNOLD

"I've Been To Town"
(Rod McKuen)

I've been to town I've walked the highways
And the harbors too
I've done somethings
I never thought I'd ever do.

Now as I stand here looking down at you
You ask me why it is I frown
I guess it's 'cause
I've been to town.

I've been to town
Beyond the boulevard
And down the beach
I've learned some things
That only time can teach.
For instance love is more
Than just a speech.

It's got to find
A common ground
I know because
I've been to town.

Don't tell me any more lies
I can't waste any more years
I've seen my image in your eyes
Dissolve in disappointed tears.

I've been to town you ask me do
I know the Milky Way
I do and furthermore I'd like to say
It isn't milky white it's dirty gray.

Especially when
Your world breaks down
I know because
I've been to town...
