Sixto Rodríguez – Dead End Street – Lou Rawls (Cover)-

They say this is a big rich town I live in the poorest part
I was raised on a dead-end street in a city without a heart
I learned to fight before I was six only way I could get along
But when you’re raised on a dead-end street you have to be tough and strong
Now all the guys are always getting in trouble that the way it’s always been
But when the odds are all against you how can you win
I’m gonna push my way out of here ever thou I can’t say when
But I’m gonna get off of this dead-end street and I ain’t never gonna coma back again
I’m gonna push my way out of here ever thou I can’t say when
But I’m gonna get off of this dead-end street
And I ain’t never gonna come back to live here again
Never, No I ain’t gonna come back here to live on this dead-end street no more
Cause I’m gonna get me a job, I’m gonna save my dough
Get away from here you-all, I ain’t gonna come back no more
Not ever, dead-end street
I tired of breaking my back gonna start using my mind

 
Tired of working all of the time
I say there’s trouble down there
I say there’s trouble down there
I say there’s trouble down there yeah
Down off a dead-end street
Down off a dead-end street
