Cletis Carr - Streets Of Shame Lyrics


The old man wore a grey uniform I recognized from the war
He just sat there in that old armchair, drenched right to the bone
A womanís voice called from the other room, I think itís time for you to go
I mumbled something underneath my breath, turned and walked out the door

And the fire, the funeral pyre, burning all night long
Thereís no turning back anymore, itís just rain
Down came the rain, on the streets of shame
Rain, smothering the flames, on the streets of shame

I walked out on a dusty road filled with traffic lights
Jesus Christ got into a cab and said, take me to the Israelites
And there sitting at a sidewalk caf», looked like Arthur C. Clarke
He said, sit with me and dine, have a glass of wine, donít be afraid of the dark

And the fire, the funeral pyre, burning all night long
Thereís no turning back anymore, itís just rain
Down came the rain, on the streets of shame
Rain, smothering the flames, on the streets of shame

The old man was there, still sitting in his chair in the middle of the road
He didnít speak for a very long time, then he just said hello
He held out his arms and in his hands was an old grey uniform
And on the collar was a medal that read, sheltered from the storm

And the fire, the funeral pyre, burning all night long
Thereís no turning back anymore, itís just rain
Down came the rain, on the streets of shame
Rain, smothering the flames, on the streets of shame
Rain, hey look at all that rain, on the streets of shame
Rain, falling down like flames, on the streets of shame
