Another written when I was on the road. I am not sure why these sordid, down on luck songs pop up then -- but they do.

Lyrics
30 years ago
(c) Emmrich 2010

(verse)
On a dark and dusty road
I made my way out into the world
left behind my mama and my favorite dog
I figured she needed him more than me
just wasn't right it seemed
but it was all I had to leave behind

(chorus)
the bright lights beckoned
the night life summoned me
I could hear it whispering my name real low
fortune hiding 'round the next bend
but sometimes those turns are just dead ends
that was 30 years ago

(verse)
on a lit but dirty road
I found that city life
was not how it was pictured in the magazine
lies abound and you gotta watch your friends close
cause they are not what they seem
like they were 30 years ago

(chorus again)

(bridge)
I lie here sometimes and picture the green fields back home
I often think of leaving and making my way back south

(verse)
on a street named Hope,
near a church named Jesus
i found out that many folks have neither
and sometimes a siren
wailing in the night
takes the place of those whippoorwills

(chorus again)
