Boulevard Lyrics By Jackson Browne

    down on the boulevard they take it hard
    they look at life with such disregard

    they say it can’t be won
    the way the game is run
    but if you choose to stay
    you wind up playing anyway
    it’s 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
    it’s alright

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

    the hearts are hard and the times are tough
    down on the boulevard the night’s enough

    and time passes slow
    between the store front shadows and the street lights glow
    everybody walks right by like they’re safe or something
    they don’t know

    nobody knows you nobody nobody
    nobody owes you nothin nobody nobody
    nobody shows you what they’re thinking nobody nobody
    nobody baby

    hey hey baby
    you got to watch the street and keep your feet and be on guard
    make ya pay baby
    it’s only time on the boulevard on the boulevard
    it’s like this
    it’s the way it is on the boulevard
    yeah yeah on the boulevard
    it’s only time on the boulevard
