Lonely Town Lyrics
They all say that it's a lonely town
They all say that it's a lonely town

Wide open spaces––empty rooms
If the weather holds out, you can get there by noon
Shadows crawl on the highway line
Don't rush, you've got time

Pull into a donut shop
And get a cup of mud
Ask for directions from a plumber outside
He says "don't go there, bud"

'Cause they all say
That it's a lonely town
And they all say
That it's a drag
And they all know
Those people in a lonely town
All those people are
Lonely and mad

Now I've got my foot on the gas
As I'm crossin' the Midwest county line
And I think about those mosquitoes on my windshield
How they don't give a damn about Christmas-time

And as the passing trucks all flash their lights
Just as I top the hill
I'll remember two green eyes and some flowers
Dyin' on a windowsill

They all say
That it's a lonely town
And they all say
That it's a drag
They all know
Those people in a lonely town
And all those people
Are lonely and mad
They're just lonely and mad
Out here in a lonely town

Dogs Lyrics
One dog buries a bone and then the
Other dog digs it up and finds
A prize in store
One dog dies and the other dogs go
Dig him up a tomb, with his
Name inscribed

And there, on his tombstone
Carved so bold
The words are clear and strong
It says:
This one is for the eyes
For the eyes of the other dogs to come
It's for the eyes of the other dogs to come

One man digs a hole while
Another one shovels dirt inside
Another hole
One man says "hello" while
Another one is leaving on a
Long journey––to a place he'll not return

And there, on his tombstone
Carved so bold
The words are clear and strong
It says:
This one is for the eyes
For the eyes of the other dogs to come
It's for the eyes of the other dogs to come
It's for the eyes of the other dogs to come
It's for the eyes of the other dogs to come

Every entrance has an exit
Every doorknob has a twist
I wonder what my face looked like
Before it looked like this?

And there, on his tombstone
Carved so bold
The words are clear and strong
It says:
This one is for the eyes
For the eyes of the other dogs to come
It's for the eyes of the other dogs to come
It's for the eyes of the other dogs to come
It's for the eyes of the other dogs to come

Newspapers Lyrics
I work for the newspapers
Any news is good news, I always say
But I don't write no daily column
Talk is cheap, and so is my pay
And when my workday's over
I pocket five or ten from the tray
And then I start it up again at five a.m.
I stack 'em up just to throw 'em away

Now lately, I've been thinkin'
What would the world do without the news?
You wouldn't know when wars were started
Or when they ended––win or lose
It'd probably be a much better world to live in
But the question would be whose
And what side you're on, or who's right or wrong
You'd never have to choose

Sometimes, late at night
I can see the streets like no one else can
There's a lot of things goin' on here
That even newspapers don't understand
Some people got too much money
Some rob with a gun or a ballpoint pen
Maybe I'll get me a big black cape
And then they'll be runnin' from me
Lookin' over their shoulder for me

What's buried in the back pages
Was on the front page yesterday
And old news never dies
Though they say it just fades away
Crime and murder, business and politics
And international strife
It's all the same, find someone to blame
It's there in black and white

Calling Out To Carol Lyrics
Calling out to Carol
She could really twist the screws
What'cha doin' Monday
And are you back on the booze?
Now, I've been doin' some thinkin'
About Colorado Springs
A dirty denim jacket
And a seven-dollar ring

Well, I've been keepin' busy
I've got lots of pots boiling on the stove
Who's that in the background
I'm sorry that I asked––I guess I should have known

Callin' out to Carol on the telephone call
Message on a wire comin' through a wall
Talk about old times but not too long ago
Carol was the girl that everybody got to know

When'd you change your number? Hey, Carol!
It's different than you had
Have you got protection?
I know some police are bad
But that's not why I called you up, now
You know I quit that scene
I told ya 'bout your pictures
I guess I'll buy that magazine

And I still remember
All those days we spent alone
You went one way while I went the other
Well, I guess sometimes that's the way things go

Callin' out to Carol on a telephone call
Message on a wire comin' through a wall
Talk about old times but not too long ago
Carol was the girl that everybody got to know
Callin' out to Carol gets a busy tone
Sees a lot of people but she lives alone
Pick up the receiver––love will come and go
But Carol was the girl that everybody got to know

When they called me in the morning
And told me that she'd gone
I didn't want to hear it
So I just hung up the phone

Callin' out––Callin' out to Carol
Callin' out––Callin' out to Carol
Callin' out––Callin' out to Carol
Callin' out to Carol
Callin' out to Carol on a telephone call
Message on a wire comin' through a wall
Is this line in service––operator says no
But Carol was a girl that everybody got to know

The Last Honest Man Lyrics
A crowd came in and sat down
Then a man began to yell
About savin' souls to heaven
And for the sinner, there was hell
Well, later on that night
In a hotel room down the road
He kept his meeting for a cat-o-nine beating
From a leather-clad man named Moe

An honest man
We're looking for the last honest man
An honest man
Keep searchin' for the last honest man

There's a man who moves the masses
On a big-city radio dial
He shouts and screams at all he's seen
Runs a talk show like a trial
And there's a bartender keepin' secrets
About a boxer that took a dive
And in an office way uptown, a deal is goin' down
That could get somebody four to five

An honest man
We're looking for the last honest man
An honest man
Keep searchin' for the last honest man

An honest man
We're looking for the last honest man
An honest man
Keep searchin' for the last honest man

Now we'll keep looking high and low
And we'll keep searching 'round
Is everybody, everyone
Dishonest in this town?
Well, they'll stab you in the back
You get a handshake and a smile
But if one don't get ya, the other one will
And ya gotta walk that mile, lookin' for

An honest man
We're looking for the last honest man
An honest man
Keep searchin' for the last honest man

An honest man
We're looking for the last honest man
An honest man
Keep searchin' for the last honest man

An honest man
We're looking for the last honest man
An honest man
Keep searchin' for the last honest man

A Mission In Life Lyrics
Sue, turn out the lights
It's time to close up––we're through
Gotta clear it out
So let's drink up, it's past two
Girl, don't push 'em out
They can walk out on their own
How many times I gotta tell you, Bob,
You gotta drink up and go home
I don't run a business
Just to talk to you all day

Clear out the backroom, Sue
Stack up the chairs
Who broke this glass?
No one really cares
Go take the trash out
And vacuum the stairs
What do I
Pay you for?
And don't forget to sweep
The glass off the floor

Once I had plans
To fix up this place
A room where you could go to
And meet people with taste
They'd talk and they'd laugh
And forget the rat race
And I'd be just like one of those guys
With the mustache and face
Hey, help me lift up this case

Hey, I'm really sorry I blew up then
I've had no sleep
I've been up all night with my wife and brother-in-law
You know, Pete
At times, this world can seem
Just like a cold icy ball
But don't let that discourage you
'Cause you're young––take that call
And if it's my wife
Just try and stall

I was just wondering
How you get home
Do you have a boyfriend?
Or do you live alone?
I'm going your way
If you're going mine
No, I feel fine
But before you go
Let me just pass on one thing

You've got a mission in life
To hold out your hand
To help the other guy out
Help your fellow man
That's why I own this bar
They're thirsty outside
I give 'em oceans to drink
Then they drown in the tide

You've got a mission in life
To hold out your hand
To help the other guy out
Help your fellow man
That's why I own this bar
They're thirsty outside
I give 'em oceans to drink
Then they drown in the tide
They just drown in the tide
They just drown in the tide
They just drown in the tide
They just drown in the tide
