      About "Angry Young Man"

      Lyrics for Steve Earle & The Dukes - "Angry Young Man"

      Got a lot of memories tied up in this place
      So much time spent in so little space
      What looked like the world through the eyes of a child
      Kind of closes in on you after awhile
      It's a place to grow up and a place to grow old
      You keep your mouth shut and you do what you're told
      I told mama the day that I ran
      This ain't no place for an angry young man

      Mama if you could see me right now
      You'd be so sure you failed me somehow
      Mama you never could understand
      There ain't no peace for an angry young man

      A cheap hotel a long way from my home
      So many people make you feel so alone
      Dreams die easy out here in these streets
      And hearts grow cold in the city heat
      I ain't never been the patient kind
      I got to live like I please or die trying
      At a filling station with a gun in my hand
      The only way for an angry young man

      Got a lot of memories tied up in this place
      Tonight they're staring me right in the face
      A lonely grave on the outskirts of town
      It's three in the morning, ain't no one around
      Just like a ghost I come out of the night
      But I'll be gone before the morning light
      Mama I hope that you understand

      This ain't no place for an angry young man
