Song Description

A bluesy commentary on the woes of capitalism and corporate America.

Lyrics

got up today with a gleam in my eye
I thought it was right I knew I could fight
the ink wasn't dry before I was high
handshakes and smiles, money in piles
glad it could work out this way
glad I could be here today

it's a downtown showdown
merry go-round
downtown ho-down
dare you to slow down

got up today with a mission in mind
but what did I find everything misaligned
impossible task so why did you ask
I gave it my all and then took the fall
it just didn't work out our way
I'm not the hero today

it's a downtown showdown
merry go-round
downtown ho-down
tequila throwdown

a walk in the park on a beautiful day
the skyline looks great from this far away
spring in the air kids everywhere
flowers in bloom no sense of doom
plenty of room left to play
the other half lives well I'd say

got up today in a new destination
opened my mind on a perfect vacation
saw the red lights and there were no fights
saw the old town saw it shut down
tradition was winning the day
not in the U S of A
