Sidewalks of the City Lyrics

Artist: Lucinda Williams
Album: Sweet Old World

Lucinda Williams Lead vocals, acoustic guitar
Gurf Morlix Electric and acoustic guitar/background vocals
Duane Jarvis Electric guitar
Dr. John Ciambotti Bass
Donald Lindley Drums and percussion
Doug Atwell fiddle

As you walk along the sidewalks of the city
You see a man with hunger in his face
And all around you crumbling buildings and graffiti
As you bend down to tie your shoelace
Sirens scream but you don't listen
You have to reach home before night
But now the sun beats down it makes the sidewalks glisten
And somehow you just don't feel right
Hold me, baby, give me some faith
Let me know you're there let me touch your face
Give me love give me grace
Tell me good things tell me that my world is safe
You pass by bars with empty stages
Three o'clock drinkers fall by
Chairs are placed on top of tables
As you brush the hair out of your eyes
A woman stops you with a question
So you drop some money in her hand
She sleeps in doorways and bus stations
And you'll never understand
Hold me, baby, give me some faith
Give me love give me grace
Tell me good things tell me that my world is safe

From Lucinda Williams 'Sweet Old World'
