Downtown Tonight Lyrics

from Album (I Know) by John Gorka
John Gorka (born 1958) is a contemporary American folk musician. In 1991, Rolling Stone magazine called him "the preeminent male singer-songwriter of what has been dubbed the New Folk Movement." [more..]

Dodging the blues, but the blues were gaining fast

Riding the news, knowing news just doesn't last

Heaven come seven with the rolling of the bones

Ah, but winning never feels like going home



He's thick at the bottom, thin at the top

Like a bottle shaken with a cork that doesn't pop

Pretending and descending to the land of woe

Oh, life's not what you think, it's what you know



Chorus:

So take it downtown tonight

And when nobody's looking you can slip it out of sight

Since you're devil bound, it's hell downtown tonight





He's beard, bone and gristle, the rest is mostly mule

He's running from the whistles, he's running as a rule

Pretending and descending to the land of woe

Oh, when you give your hand to fate, she don't let go



(Chorus)



Dodging the blues, but the blues were gaining fast

Riding the news, knowing news just doesn't last

Heaven come seven with the rolling of the bones

Oh, life's not what you think, it's what you know

Oh, when you give your hand to fate, she don't let go
