Song Description

A poignant look at change in rural America.

Story Behind the Song

Life continuing in small towns across the country, after interstate highways took the place of railways and small roads which had brought commerce and life to them.

Lyrics

One more night in this dirty, red brick town
Not much left since the steel works closed down
Now only rust rolls along these tracks
No more sweethearts in Cadillacs
Broken down on Easy Street tonight

Drinking nights in Danny?s downtown bar
Arguing politics won?t go that far
One more dream then wander home
TV?s in every window glow
making time with Hollywood tonight

You waited up for the longest hour
But there?s nothing in sight
Broken down on Easy Street tonight

Oh, summer?s closing down
Like slow train through this lonely town

The old men in the square don?t wonder why
The interstate goes west, and right on by
Picture walls show better days
But people keep living, anyway
That?s just the way it goes, night after night
