Rich Man's Town

This song is by Dave Alvin and appears on the album Blue Blvd (1991).

As tough as you are somebody's tougher
As strong as you are somebody's stronger
But as weak as you are somebody's weaker
When you're living in a Rich Man's Town

As high as you are somebody's higher
As tall as you are somebody's taller
But as low as you are somebody's lower
When you're living in a Rich Man's Town

In a Rich Man's Town
In a Rich Man's Town
People look you in the eye
But when they look
In a Rich Man's Town
No one sees you as you cry

As quick as you are somebody's quicker
As sharp as you are somebody's sharper
But as slow as you are somebody's slower
When you're living in a Rich Man's Town

In a Rich Man's Town
In a Rich Man's Town
People fall like drops of rain
But when you fall
In a Rich Man's Town
Even God forgets your nam

'Cause as much as you got somebody's got more
As much as you get somebody gets more
But as much as you need somebody needs more
When you're living in a Rich Man's Town

In a Rich Man's Town
In a Rich Man's Town
In a Rich Man's Town
As poor as you are somebody's poorer
When you're living in a Rich Man's Town
