CITY BLUES

The city sidewalk's crowded. Traffic's moving slow.
Eyes I meet are somewhere else -somewhere they have to go.
Funny - how a fellow can feel lonely in a crowd .
You can feel like you are nowhere -
though the city noise is loud.

Chorus
My feet move on the concrete,
through a canyon made of stone.
The city sidewalk's crowded ,
but still I feel alone.
It can make you wonder,
and leave you more confused.
The city's roar and thunder,
is the sound of city blues.

It's something like the rapids, in a canyon river's flow.
There's whirlpools and there's rocks, dark water runs below.
Our little raft is fragile. It needs a team to steer,
through the city rapids.
It can be lonely here.

Chorus
The hustle and the hurry,
the bustle and the strife -
and thousands rushing - where ?
On the streets of city life.
It can make you wonder,
and leave you more confused.
The city's roar and thunder,
is the sound of city blues.
