THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN
Steve Earle


When I'm sad and blue

And I'm feeling all alone

There's a place that I go to

That no one knows

Where no matter what I do

Won't nobody put me down

That's why I'm going to

The other side of town

Chorus:

On the other side of town

Where the sun don't ever shine

Everybody walks around

With a shadow cross their minds

When that midnight train rolls by

And they hear that lonesome sound

They just hang their heads and cry

On the other side of town



Well it isn't very far

And it's not that hard to find

You just follow all the other lonely souls

Take a walk down lonesome lane

'Til you see the dead end sign

And your broken heart will tell you where to go



To the other side of town

Where the sun don't ever shine

Everybody walks around

With a shadow cross their minds

When that midnight train rolls by

And they hear that lonesome sound

They just hang their heads and cry

On the other side of town



So if you've find someone

Who won't ever let you down

Hurry home before the sun goes down

No matter what you do

Don't let night fall like a shroud

And catch you on the other side of town



Chorus
