Well sometimes in the evenings I start to get that feeling Like I'm empty inside I know I'm doin' good now but tonight I'm headed downtown Down by the riverside I sit underneath the freeway with an old friend from the old days And a bottle of wine Well he used to call me "Big Time", and he knew someday that I'd shine Said he'd seen all the signs He said... Keep yourself to yourself Keep your bedroll dry And boy you never can tell What the shadows hide Keep ene eve on the ground Pick up whatever you find 'Cause you've got no place to fall When your back's to the wall He's gettin' old and it's showin' when I asked him how it's goin' He said "I've seen better I guess I've been rained on, I've been frozen, but this here's the life I've chosen If it just wasn't for the loneliness " Now this river suits me to a T. but if you're trying to raise a family It ain't no place to be There's a kid down by the dump there, ought to be in grade school somewhere Now he hangs out with me Well we finished off the bottle and I told him, "Joe I think I ought to Be headed uptown Well it was late, and I'd been drinkin', drivin' home I got to thinkin' 'Bout what's been going down 'Cause they're nervous down on Wall Street, but they're trying to keep it upbeat Or maybe they just don't care But down at the river eyes are burnin' cause they feel the tables turnin' So if you wind up down there...
