Jackson Browne On The Boulevard Lyrics

Down on the boulevard they take it hard
They look at life with such disregard
They say it cant be won
The way the game is run
But if you choose to stay
You end up playing anyway
Its okay--

The kids in shock up and down the block
The folks are home playing beat the clock
Down at the golden cup
They set the young ones up
Under the neon light
Selling day for night
Its alright--

Nobody rides for free
Nobody gets it like they want it to be
Nobody hands you any guarantee

The hearts are hard and the times are tough
Down on the boulevard the nights enough
And time passes slow
Between the store front shadows and the street lights glow

Everybody walks right by like theyre safe or something
They dont know--

Nobody knows you
Nobody owes you nothin
Nobody shows you what theyre thinking
Nobody baby

Hey, hey, baby
You got to watch the street, keep your feet
And be on guard
Make it pay baby
Its only time on the boulevard
