Rupert Holmes - Philly Lyrics




Momma, you came from northern Tennessee.
Pappa, you said the country's no good for me.
You had so much to gain, ya moved on to Pennsylvania lights.
Philly, you were the town where I was born.
Philly you're where I end up, cotton coat torn.
So much for making millions,
Seems like I've seen a billion nights.

Oh but Philly, you've been the friend I never knew
Philly, your brother love was always true.
Philly, you've been beside me bright or blue.

Brother, pushing a hack, you'll never win.
Sister, you spread your life a little too thin
I had no time for grievin',
Too hard just breakin' even then
Philly, dudes from New York don't know your face.
Don't need nobody else, we got our own place.
Maybe it's down to earth,
At least we know what we're worth, amen.

Oh and Philly, you've been the friend I never knew
Philly, your brother love was always true.
Philly you've been beside me bright or blue.

So much for making millions,
Seems like I've seen a billion nights.

Oh and Philly, you've been the friend I never knew
Philly your brother love was always true
Philly you've been beside me, bright or blue.

Philly, Philly…
