Walking the Streets of my Home Town

Walking the streets of my home town
Don't need a river of water to drown
Two times up, three times down
Walking the streets of my home town

The lights in the taverns are shining bright
Mommy and Daddy are dancing tonight
Tomorrow is bingo, the next night darts
Nobody knows where the children are

I walk by the school but the doors are barred
Empty gymnasiun sits in the dark
Inside it's warm, outside it's cold
It's hard to be young, can't wait to be old

Walking the streets of my home town
Don't need a river of water to drown
Two times up, three times down
Walking the streets of my home town

Hiding in the dark the gang smokes dope
Chews bubble gum before they go home
It' hard to be good when it's fun to be bad
I wonder how much more I can stand

Young Billy, he's dead, he died last year
Good looking kid, long curly hair
The papers all said that a boy died young
But the kids all know it was suicide

Walking the streets of my home town
Don't need a river of water to drown
Two times up, three times down
Walking the streets of my home town

My brother, he's gone, he left last year
Nothing for him to do around here
I wish he was home but I'm glad he's gone
I'll be gone, too, before too long

Walking the streets of my home town
Don't need a river of water to drown
Two times up, three times down
Walking the streets of my home town
