On Broadway

This song is by James Taylor and appears on the album Covers (2008).

They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway
They say there's always magic in the air
But when you're walkin' down that street
And you ain't had enough to eat
The glitter rubs right off and you're nowhere (on Broadway)

They say the girls are something else on Broadway (on Broadway)
But looking at them just gives me the blues
'Cause how ya gonna make some time
When all you got is one thin dime?
And one thin dime, that won't even shine your, you filthy shoes (on Broadway)

They say that I won't last too long on Broadway (on Broadway)
I'll catch a Greyhound bus for home, they all say
But oh! they're wrong, I know that they are
'Cause I can play this here guitar
And I won't quit till I'm a star on Broadway (on Broadway)

But oh, they're wrong, I know they are
'Cause I can play this here guitar
And I won't quit 'til I'm a star on Broadway
On Broadway (on Broadway)

Never gonna quit,
Never gonna quit my thing
'Til I make it on Broadway (on Broadway)

I'll be a big man yes
You're gonna know my name (on Broadway)
All up and down Broadway
Yeah up and down Broadway (on Broadway)
Dirty filthy Broadway
Break your heart Broadway (on Broadway)
Everybody gonna know my name
(Walk, walk, walk on by)
(Walk, walk)
(Walk, walk, walk on by)
(Walk, walk)
(Walk, walk, walk on by) (fade out)
