Upbeat and jolly.

Story Behind the Song

A song inspired about my days as a struggling singer/songwriter gigging around London. References Ernie Fords's '16 tons' song.

Lyrics

ON CAREY STREET - Richard Murray

I'm goin' down on Carey Street
Goin' way on down in the summer heat
Goin' down on Carey street
For loadin' 16 tons again

Been a long time since I left my home
Toked the Big Smoke as I was roamin' around
Since then I made nada
With my Stratocaster made down in Ensenada

I'm goin' down on Carey Street
Goin' way on down in the summer heat
Goin' down on Carey street
For loadin' 16 tons again

I'm down where the money burns
Another day older but I'll never learn
Playin' round for the unconcerned
Bleedin' fingers and nothin' earned

I'm goin' down on Carey Street
Goin' way on down in the summer heat
Goin' down on Carey street
For loadin' 16 tons again

But there's a fire burnin' still after all this time
And its burnin' in a belly full of number 9
When it seems my dreams may never be
I just load it up like Tennessee

I'm goin' down on Carey Street
Goin' way on down in snow and sleet
Goin' down on Carey street
For loadin' 16 tons
One more time...
I'm goin' down on Carey Street
Goin' way on down where the deadbeat meet
You load 15 tons and then repeat
Down Carey Street again
Down Carey Street again
Down Carey street again
