The City
by Joe Purdy

The city keeps on going, on.

Float down the river with my Iddy and Jay ?
Get off the boat and board a plan to J-K-F and I, ain't slept a week
But it don't seem to matter to the subway squeakers, squeak (and squeak)

The city keeps on going
We just keep on rolling
The city keeps on going
We just keep on rolling, on.

Grand Central Station and got wind they're coming on
And the goodness yesterday ?
No one round oh and I still recognize her
After all these years and she still looks the same
Ah, she still looks the same.

Oh and we end up in Brooklyn
It was rainin' so hard
Come up all day
And the rain to clear it off,
Oh we're just people watching on 3rd and St. Mormons ?
And when the girl's kissing my face, my face
She was just kissing my face

And again, again

Just when I was sick and lonely,
There was a shaking on the ground
We were hiding from the rain
We were riding on the train
Just when I was sick and lonely,
There was a shaking on the ground
Were were hiding from the rain
Were were riding on the train.

She was dancing on the midway
Just kissing my face
She was dancing on the midway
Just kissing my face
Dancing on the midway
Kissing my face
Dancing on the midway
Just waving goodbye.

The city keeps on going on

Float down the river with my Matty D and Jay
Get off the boat and board a plane to JFK and I
Haven't slept in a week
But it don't seem to matter to the subway speakers squeaking at my feet

The city keeps on going
We just keep on rolling
The city keeps on going
We just keep on rolling on

Grand Central Station got a windy coming down
Independence yesterday, ain't no one around
Oh I still recognize her after all these years
She still looks the same
Oh, she still looks the same

The city keeps on going
We just keep on rolling
The city keeps on going
Oh, we just keep on rolling
Rolling on
Rolling on

When we left Brooklyn it was raining so hard
Come up on 8th and the rain it cleared off
We're just people watching on 3rd and St. Mark's
Wendy girl just kissing my face, my face
She was just kissing my face

The city keeps on going
We just keep on rolling
The city keeps on going
We just keep on rolling
Again, again, again
The city keeps on going
We just keep on rolling
The city keeps on going
Oh, we just keep on rolling
Rolling on
Rolling on

Just when I was sick and down
There was a shaking on the ground
We were hiding from the rain
We were riding on the train
Just when I was sink and down
There was a shaking on the ground
We were hiding from the rain
We were riding on the train

She was dancing on the midway
Just kissing my face
She was dancing on the midway
Just kissing my face
Dancing on the midway
Just kissing my face
Dancing on the midway
Just waving goodbye

Joe Purdy: you have a fan in the Ottawa Valley. It seems people have not been here for a while, and you only have 57 subscribers; I conclude you are not very active. I love this song; you have many others that are even more lovely - and this is lovely. Lovely songs. Thanks.
