Shantytown – Mono Version


I live down in Shantytown
Where chicken’s twenty cents a pound
And if you live on such solid ground
What are you doing down in Shantytown
What are you doing down in Shantytown

[Verse 1]
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
Because we got pride in Shantytown


[Verse 2]
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
