The Sad Side Of Town
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


We've agreed not to mention any memories
Or share a single passing thought
That's just better for all concerned, is what we've found
When you're living on the sad

There's always hope, but we don't ever let it show
'Cause hopes start out real small, but how they just grow
And, just like dreams, are better left alone
Is what we've found
When you're living on the sad side of town

Please never bring up how she used to laugh at night
Would smell so sweet and giggle when I squeezed her tight
If you can put a stop to that, there's a chance you might
Fit in here well enough to try this style of life

That's just better for all concerned, is what we've found
When you're living on the sad side of town

When you're living on the sad side of town

Awesome long Dwight singing this.....years of happiness for me hearing this album since it was released. Love the album

I enjoy Dwight's talent VERY much. He has a great voice. I read once that he wrote song's from January-June. Then the rest of the year touring. Around April I saw he was coming to Utah. Then checking the itinerary I noticed no Utah. I was upset for months. I didn't listen to his music. I still check the schedule. No Utah. Oh well, I am happy he is Healthy & can tour longer this year.
