The Pretty Reckless – Wild City

Wild City

[Verse 1]
It's that time of the season, when the blood runs hot
And God must have a reason when the temperature drops
One more nameless baby and a momma in shame
Not one of the fathers of the churches came

[Chorus]
For a motherless child in the wild, wild city
It ain't no place for a girl so young and pretty
A motherless child in the wild, wild city
Cause the city ain't no place for a lonely girl

[Verse 2]
It could happen to me, it could happen to you
It's the luck of the draw, it's the blow of the dice
There ain't nothin' that you can do
She took too many daddies, took too many home
Tryna find the one, someone else's son
She couldn't weather those streets alone

[Chorus]
For a motherless child in the wild, wild city
It ain't no place for a girl, so young and pretty
A motherless child in the wild, wild city
Cause the city ain't no place for a lonely girl

[Guitar solo]

[Chorus]
For a motherless child in the wild, wild city
It ain't no place for a girl, so young and pretty
A motherless child in the wild, wild city
Cause the city ain't no place, no no
The city ain't no place, no no
The city ain't no place for a lonely girl
