Heading home after trying to earn a living in a strange and tough environment.



The sound of the windshield wipers
A gentle rhythm as the rain pours down
Two years on my own, now I’m driving home
I’ve been working in the boomtown

Went west hoping to hit the big time
But my big break never came around
I just played and I worked, worked down in the dirt
In the trenches of the boomtown

Spent all my hard earned money
On those sorrows I needed to drown
Yeah, I used to think I could hold my drink
Till I landed in the boomtown

Thought I could avoid temptation
But I still heard that siren sound
I didn’t know the score when I washed ashore
A small fish in the big town

Then one day I took on the foreman
Pretty even going pound for pound
But I left my blood in the dark black mud
Bottomed out in the Boomtown

The sound of the windshield wipers
Heading east as the rain slows down
I’m driving alone, on my way back home
Happy to get out of the boomtown

I’m out of that town
