Still Stuck Here In L.A.
Words & Music by Pat Flanakin

Some folks need a house to call their own
I guess with four walls you don't feel the need to roam
Oh, but I don't feel that way
I never did and I doubt I'll change
But I'm dyin', still stuck here in L.A.

Now, there's a freeway runnin' across my apartment yard
And ev'ry night I lie awake and I count the cars
The only reason that I stay
Is in the music I love to play
And I'm tryin', still stuck here in L.A.

Now it's been so long
Since I've been back home
I can barely recall
My mother's face
I know I'll find my sunny day
But I'm just cryin'
Still stuck here in L.A.

All my sisters are grown and they've got their families
And my brother don't know just what's come over me
Oh, he thinks I've gone astray
He says don't waste your time that way
But I'll keep tryin', still stuck here in L.A.


Yes, I'll keep tryin'
Still stuck here in L.A.
