Virginia Avenue

This song is by Tom Waits and appears…

Well, I'm walking on down Virginia Avenue
Trying to find somebody to tell my troubles to
Harold's club is closing and everybody's going on home
What's a poor boy to do?

I'll just get on back into my short
Make it back to the fort
Sleep off all the crazy lizards inside of my brain
There's got to be someplace that's better than this
This life I'm leading's driving me insane

And let me tell you, I'm dreaming

Let me tell you that I'm dreaming to the twilight
This town has got me down
I've seen all the highlights
I've been walking all around
Won't make a fuss
I'll take a Greyhound bus
Carry me away from here
Oh, tell me, what have I got to lose?

'Cause I'm walking on down Columbus Avenue
Bars all are closing, 'cause it's quarter to two
Every town I go to is like a lock without a key
Blues I leave behind keep catching up on me
Let me tell you, they're catching up on me
They're catching up on me
Catching up on me
Catching up on me
Catching up on me
