I get away to Little Rock whenever I'm blue,  And from my little rocking chair I take in the view,
The breezes rock me to the Little Rock Get Getaway.
There's always someone dropping by to lean on the gate,  I look at those familiar faces and I feel great,
The town is humming to the Little Rock Get Getaway.
Folks can run to New York or out to Chcago,  I'll join the smalltown flock,
And I'll have me a time a big time in Little Rock,  It's just a stone's throw from Heaven,
It's got a lot of ev'rything from A up to Z,  A sun a moon a pretty tune a sweetie for me,
My heart will always sing the Little Rock Get Getaway.
