Artist/Band: Old 97s
Lyrics for Song: Streets of Where I'm From
Lyrics for Album: Too Far To Care [1997]



I've been down, I've been down too far to care -

I keep getting in my car but I'm not going anywhere.

And I've been had, well at least that's how it looks -

And it's not funny like on TV and it's not smart like ti is in books.



And I wonder yeah I wonder how the world keeps spinnin' 'round.

Where's a boy with bad intentions gonna settle down?

And I don't know what you've been told,

The streets of where I'm from are paved with hearts instead of gold.

Yeah the streets of where I'm from are paved with hearts instead of gold.



I recall, when I was twenty-three -

Wondering how anyone could fall in love with me.

But now I'm old, hell I'm well past twent-five -

And I can't seem to fall in love no matter how I try.



And I wonder where I'll wind up but I'm headed west I know.

Wind my way through Texas and into New Mexico,

And I don't know what you've been told,

The streets of where I'm from are paved with hearts instead of gold.

Yeah the streets of where I'm from are paved with hearts instead of gold.



And I don't know what you've been told,

The streets of where I'm from are paved with hearts instead of gold.

Yeah the streets of where I'm from are paved with hearts instead of gold.

Yeah the streets of where I'm from are paved with hearts instead of gold.
