Lucky Town


House got too crowded clothes got too tight
And I donít know just where Iím going tonight
Out where the skyís been cleared by a good hard rain
Thereís somebody calliní my secret name

Iím going down to Lucky Town
Going down to Lucky Town
I wanna lose these blues Iíve found
Down in Lucky Town
Down in Lucky Town

Had a coat of fine leather and snakeskin boots
But that coat always had a thread hanginí loose
Well I pulled it one night and to my surprise
It led me right past your house and on over the rise

Iím going down to Lucky Town
Down to Lucky Town
Iím gonna lose these blues Iíve found
Down in Lucky Town
Down in Lucky Town

I had some victory that was just failure in deceit
Now the jokeís cominí up through the soles of my feet
I been a long time walking on fortuneís cane
Tonight Iím stepiní lightly and feeliní no pain

Well hereís to your good looks baby now hereís to my health
Hereís to the loaded places that we take ourselves
When it comes to luck you make your own
Tonight I got to dirt on my hands but Iím building me a new home

Down in Lucky Town
Down in Lucky Town
Iím gonna lose these blues Iíve found
Down in Lucky Town
