lyrics

(Words/music by P.Mark)

Doc Pomus in his wheelchair
Lone Star Café, Fifth Ave.
Doc Pomus in his wheelchair
Lone Star Café, Fifth Ave.
With Big Joe Turner, checking the tunes
Licking their beers and sipping their wounds

Headlights flashing towards the station
Pressing down on the steel road
Metal thunders past the platform
Train don’t stop in this town no more

We got a schoolboy in the big house
Slamming doors and blowing smoke
We got a schoolboy in the big house
Slamming doors and blowing smoke
Covering his ears and starting a war
Hoping his god will carry him home

I saw Jesus in the Riverside Diner
Working coffee and a smoke
I saw Jesus in the Riverside Diner
Working coffee and a smoke
His head was hanging low
Wondering where it all went wrong
