I get a - way to Lit - tle Rock when - ev - er I'm blue,  And from my lit - tle rock - ing chair I take in the view,
The breez - es rock me to the Lit - tle Rock Get Get - a - way.
There's al - ways some - one drop - ping by to lean on the gate,  I look at those fa - mil - iar fac - es and I feel great,
The town is hum - ming to the Lit - tle Rock Get Get - a - way.
Folks can run to New York or out to Ch - ca - go,  I'll join the small - town flock,
And I'll have me a time a big time in Lit - tle Rock,  It's just a stone's throw from Heav - en,
It's got a lot of ev - 'ry - thing from A up to Z,  A sun a moon a pret - ty tune a sweet - ie for me,
My heart will al - ways sing the Lit - tle Rock Get Get - a - way.
