      About "Lonely Town"

      Lyrics for Stan Ridgway - "Lonely Town"

      They all say that it's a lonely town
      They all say that it's a lonely town
      Wide open spaces, empty rooms
      If the weather holds out you could get there by noon

      Shadows crawl on the highway line
      Don't rush, you got time
      Pull into a donut shop and get a cup of mud
      Ask for directions from a plumber outside

      He says, "Don't go there bud..."
      'Cause, they all say that it's a lonely town
      And they all say that it's a drag
      And they all know those people in a lonely town

      All those people are lonely and mad
      Now I got my foot on the gas
      And as I'm crosing the Mid-West County line
      I think about those mosquitos on my windshield

      And how they don't give a damn about Christmas time
      And as the passing trucks all flash their lights
      Just as I top the hill
      I'll remember two green eyes and some flowers dryin' on a window sill...
      'Cause they all say that it's a lonely town
      And they all say that it's a drag
      And they all know those people in a lonely town
      All those people are lonely and mad
      They're just lonely and mad
      Out in a
