Dirty Old Sidewalk
Lyrics:
Music:

Well, it's a good staggering distance
From my local bar
To my house around the corner
No, it ain't so far
When I see my front porch
You know my heart feels lighter
And the dirty old sidewalk
Seems to shine a little brighter

Dirty old sidewalk
That leads to my home
I know every crack by heart
It's where I belong
They say the streets of heaven
Are paved with gold
But I sure hope there's a
Dirty old sidewalk
Or I don't wanna go
No, no, I don't wanna go

I hear Merle Haggard in the distance
From a passing car
Lord knows I've had my troubles
Guess it hasn't been so hard
Now I'm in the home stretch
My porch light shines before me
On the dirty old sidewalk
I'm bound for glory

Dirty old sidewalk
That leads to my home
I know every crack by heart
It's where I belong
They say the streets of heaven
Are paved with gold
But I sure hope there's a
Dirty old sidewalk
Or I don't wanna go

Carry for me these battered boot heels
These worn-out ideals that keep me moving
Bury for me these ghosts that won't let me be
Sidewalk, set me free
From the storm clouds that are brewing

Dirty old sidewalk
Seems to shine a little brighter
Oh, shine a little brighter

The dirty old sidewalk
That leads to my home
I know every crack by heart
It's where I belong
They say the streets of heaven
Are paved with gold
But I sure hope there's a
Dirty old sidewalk
I sure hope there's a
Dirty old sidewalk
I said there's a
Dirty old sidewalk
Or I don't wanna go
No, no, I don't wanna go
