Shantytown Lyrics

(I live down in Shantytown
Where chicken's twenty cents a pound)
And if you live on such solid ground
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown

Well I'm back on your side of the tracks
Have come back for me to take you back
Back to your high society
To your cocktails and your teas
I'll look up but don't look down
Cause we got pride in Shantytown

(I live down in Shantytown
Where chicken's twenty cents a pound)
And if you live on such solid ground
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown

Behind the walls of your shackled heart beats pure
While the rich have a love to endure
Well is the gold in your crown turning black
Is there something here in Shantytown that keeps you coming back

I live down in Shantytown
Where chicken's twenty cents a pound
And if you live on such solid ground
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown
