Mainstreet Lyrics By Bob Seger

    i remember standing on the corner at midnight
    trying to get my courage up
    there was this long lovely dancer in a little club downtown
    i loved to watch her do her stuff
    through the long lonely nights she filled my sleep
    her body softly swaying to that smoky beat
    down on mainstreet
    down on mainstreet

    in the pool halls the hustlers and the losers
    i used to watch ’em through the glass
    well i’d stand outside at closing time
    just to watch her walk on past
    unlike all the other ladies she looked so young and sweet
    as she made her way alone down that empty street
    down on mainstreet
    down on mainstreet

    and sometimes even now when i’m feeling lonely and beat
    i drift back in time and i find my feet
    down on mainstreet
    down on mainstreet
