Hometown Streets Lyrics

Everybody packs their goals
They sail away for better shores
And I have seen times
My sails have held a brilliant shine

I hear tell that dreams come true
Along these crowded avenues
But, my peace of mind
Is a place I go when I close my eyes

I need a hometown street where the boys are pretty
And a friend is still a friend
I need a hometown street where the love you're given
Surely comes back 'round again

Hometown streets are paved in gold
With faces that you've always known
But, you'll never see them
Until you pack your dreams and leave them

The one I loved has moved away
It's hot in this city
Hey, it's always late
Here in this place
Love doesn't get the time of day

I need a hometown street where the boys are pretty
And a friend is still a friend
I need a hometown street where the love you're given
Surely comes back 'round again
And again and again and again and again

I can't remember
What I came here for
I'm gonna pull up my anchor
And sail for shore

I need a hometown street where the boys are pretty
And a friend is still a friend
I need a hometown street where the love you're given
Surely comes back 'round again
And again and again and again

I need a hometown street where the boys are pretty
And a friend is still a friend
I need a hometown street where the love you're given
Surely comes back 'round again
And again and again and again and again

Hey, I need a hometown street
Hey, I need a hometown street
Hey, I need a hometown street
Hey, I need a hometown street
