This Side of Town

(Mike Maves)
July 23, 2005
This side of town gets a kind of glow
At night when the liquor like a river flows
Your daddy’s gone out and your mamma’s stoned
I guess that means that we’re all alone

We go round, round round
This town’ll turn you upside down
And the sun goin' down
Ain’t nobody cares what’s going down
Ain’t nobody cares what’s going down
Ain’t nobody cares what’s going down
On this side of town
This side of town

Girl you’re young and there’s much to know
But it’ll be all right if we just take it slow
There ain’t no one with no need to know
That you get a little high when you get feeling low

And go round, round round
When I get inside I won’t make a sound
And when the sun goes down
Ain’t nobody cares what’s going down
Ain’t nobody cares what’s going down
Ain’t nobody cares what’s going down
On this side of town
This side of town

There’s driving rain and driving snow
And there’s driving all night with nowhere to go
But when the moon is bright and the lights are low
We’ll take our little drive down a dirty road

And go round, round round
This love’ll turn you upside down
And when the sun goes down
Ain’t nobody cares what’s going down
Ain’t nobody cares what’s going down
Ain’t nobody cares what’s going down
On this side of town
This side of town
