lyrics

Scarecrows huddle in the rail yard,
Babies play in the heath,
Old men gather at the side of the road to watch
Mamma doin' laundry in the creek.

I'm goin' down,
Clear across the other side of town.

Beatniks sweat from the Bible,
Homeless sweat from the heat,
Daddy got beat by libel,
While brother gains from cheatin'

I'm goin' down,
Where the climate suits my clothes.
I'm goin' down,
Clear across the other side of town.

Pigeons line all the fenceposts,
Tin cans rattle in the streets,
Madmen talk to the side of the wall,
While their cigarette puts them to sleep.

I'm going down,
Where the chilly winds don't blow.
I'm goin' down,
Clear across the other side of town.

Soot comes flyin' through the windows,
Mud comes up through the pipes,
Get myself to the other side of town
If I ever get to sleep at night.

I'm goin' down,
Goin' where I never been before.
I'm goin' down,
Clear across the other side of town.

I'm goin' down,
Clear across the other side of town.
