LUCINDA WILLIAMS lyrics - East Side Of Town

LUCINDA WILLIAMS
"East Side Of Town"

You think you got problems
You don't know the half of it.
I hear you talk about you're millions, and your politics
You wanna cross the poverty line
Then you come have a look around
So why you don't come find me - on east side of town

You think you're mister do good and you know what you're talking 'bout
When you find yourself in my neighbourhood
You can't wait to get the hell out
You wanna see what it means to suffer
You wanna see what means to be down
Why don't you come over - to the east side of town

You think your dogs are mean
But you ain't see nothin' yet
I'll show you things you never seen and you wish you could forget
You wanna see how the other half lives
You wanna see how we've be around
Then why don't you come visit me on east side of town

You got your ideas and your visions,
And you say you sympathise
You look but you don't listen,
There's no empathy in your eyes
You make deals and promises, and everybody bows down
And now you wanna come shake my hand
On the east side of town

So why you don't come find me
On the east side of town
Why don't you come over
To the east side of town
Why don't you come visit me?
On east side of town
