Song Description

Some of the guys you see playing out on the street have obviously been good at one time. They are still trying to perform. Give a listen real hard next time, maybe drop an Abe Lincoln in the guitar case. Thanks!

Story Behind the Song

I put myself in the life of the street corner musician, trying to fill in his day and way of thinking.

Absolutely great guitar/vocal with harmonica...Acoustic blues/country is very commercial for movie and television background music...I love the authenticity of your vocal...The harmonica added the cherry on top of the sundae...2:51 is a perfect length...I would not be surprised to hear a music library or music placement company picked this up for licensing...strong lyrics and melody...great job

Lyrics

OH OH OH
DIG MY FINGERS TO THE BONE
ON THIS SIX STRING EPIPHONE
SAD SONGS YOU HEARD LONG AGO
NO APPLAUSE, IT'S A LONELY SHOW

(CHORUS)
LIVING OFF THE STREET
ONE PINT AT A TIME
DAY BY DAY DISCRETE
BUT I'M NOT AFRAID OF DYING.......
OUT ON THE STREET

HANGIN AROUND, THESE EMPTY EYES
AIN'T WORTH THE CRYING
BEST FRIENDS WITH A BOTTLE
ANYTHING ELSE WOULD BE LYING

(REPEAT CHORUS)

OUT ON THE STREET

(INSTRUMENTAL)

(BRIDGE)
IT AIN'T SO BAD WHEN YOU GOT NO PLACE IN MIND
NO CLOCK REMINDING YOU, YOU GOT LOTS OF TIME
...CAUSE YOU'RE

(REPEAT CHORUS)

OH OH OH I MAKE MY LIVING OUT ON THE STREET

DROP SOME CHANGE, I'LL TAKE ANYTHING
LIVING SURE AIN'T WHAT IT USED TO BE
MIGHT BE THE LAST SONG I EVER SING
NOT TOO MANY SONGS LEFT, MANY SONGS LEFT IN ME

(OUTRO)
I MAKE MY LIVING......OUT ON THE STREET
