      Lyrics for Steve Winwood - "Dirty City (Album Version)"

      The gangster came to see by boy
      When I was working nights to pay one more bill
      He promised the kid a sweeter life
      Said, "Gotta understand it's dog eat dog out there"
      Well I looked in his room when I got home
      And underneath the covers found a loaded gun
      He looked at me with empty eyes
      He said, "It's time for me to be moving on"

      [Chorus]
      Dirty city, this is a dirty town
      Where's the pity, I can't move on up to higher ground

      I spoke to my woman the other day
      She said, "I need more cash we can't pay our way"
      She said, "Everything gets really hard
      And I need something sweet, don't you understand?"
      The roar of the train runs by my room
      And on these summer nights I can't sleep anymore
      I walk in the streets to greet the dawn
      Or stay at home all night and stare at the floor

      [Chorus: x2]

      Help me now
      Move on to a higher ground
      Help somehow
      Make a move to a higher ground
      Won't you help somehow
      Make a move to a higher ground
      Won't you help somehow
      I need a little help

      [Chorus]
