Glenn Rodriguez This track was discovered at the right time my life. Love the lyrics and can relate to this so much.

The track itself is just a jam and is played loudly everyday in this apartment.

lyrics

The day I stepped my first foot in the city
I promised I wouldn't sell my soul
The day I stepped that one first foot in the city
I promised I wouldn't sell my soul
But when the lights and the scene
they shined down onto me
I swear to you that night I saw the light

So if the devil comes callin'
you can give him my apartment
and I will sign right on the dotted line.

My momma always said
those girls of the city
Aren't the kind of girls we'd like for you to see
My momma always said
son don't get to busy
Those girls sure don't know what's best for me

But when those girls showed me
The gifts they gave me for free.
I swear it brought a tear to my eye

Now if this whiskey and women
don't kill me I'm certain
That I'm pretty sure that I will never die.

Now after all that I've done and
I'll that I seen
Good luck puttin' me down in the ground
Cause I have lived and laughed and loved,
and gambled, boozed and stolen
Enough to tear any grown man down

and Oh Lord
Oh Lord
Look at what your boy has done tonight.
So now if you have words for me
You can take it up with us three
Me, my left hook, and my right.
