Lyrics

If I ever found myself one day
Reacon in a dreamers cabaret
Dreams be what they seem.
Yeah I figured it must be nice
easy street, paradise,
without a care 'til the truth comes clean.
Hard to make an old penny shine
Hard to untangle the line
Hard to hold a fortune you.
Paid the price I'll never know
Walkin' them lonely streets of gold
with a million dollar blues.

Steppin' my heels to this ol' concrete
Walkin' to the time of my heartbeat
Hopin' these soles they never wear through.
Watchin' all the workers in the street
Tamp the tar and cuss the heat,
laughin' at a joke somebody knew.
It's hard to make an old penny shine
Hard to untangle the line
Hard to hold a fortune you.
Paid the price I'll never know
Walkin' them lonely streets of gold

with a million dollar blues.

Drinkin' in a dreamers cabaret
A thousand thoughts away,
a thousand thoughts of you.
It's hard to make an old penny shine
Hard to untangle the line
Hard to hold a fortune you.
Paid the price I'll never know
Walkin' them lonely streets of gold
with a million dollar blues.
Paid the price I'll never know
Walkin' them lonely streets of gold
with a million dollar blues.
