South Side
 
Lyrics
(Spoken: Me and Jamie were up on Lookout Point the other day, talking about all the plans we'd made, and wondering where all the years went. We figured by now we'd be long gone from this place. But, we were just sitting there, watching that sun set as it went down one more time, over the South Side.)

Jamie Walker, well she had a car
She wasn't pretty, but we sure went far
Them back seats, I was a star, on the South Side

We's gonna go to Hollywood, wear fancy clothes
Gonna get a part in those big, big shows
But what's a dream? It's just a scream at the South Side

They said "It's playing numbers," but we thought we'd win
She got knocked up and it all caved in
Them wedding bells, our dreams just fell on the South Side
Our dreams just fell on the South Side

Jamie swore we'd always make it big
Now I'm driving this truck and she's got a night gig
Just me and her was gonna break right through
But now I'm hiding like you, with "baby, maybe someday"...
on the South Side

They say these shackles, they don't have no chains
But these dreams keep running through my brain
And it's cold as hell on the South Side
Oh God it's cold as hell on the South Side
On the South Side, On the South Side

Jamie Walker, well she had a car
She wasn't pretty, but we sure went far
Them back seats, I was a star...on the South Side
In them back seats, I...well I was a star
On the South Side, On the South Side, etc.
