lyrics

Shady Side of the Street

B7 Em

Em Am Em B7 Em Am B7 Em

B7 Em

Em Am
I keep my blinds rolled up
Em B7
and my windows open wide
Em Am
even though I got
B7 Em
a few skeletons to hide
Em Am
we try to keep cool
Em B7
easy as a breeze
Em Am
I'm gonna do
B7 Em
exactly as I please


Em Am Em
we live on the shady side of the street
G B7
on the edge where the light and darkness meet
C G
and everybody here wants to keep out of the heat
C B7 Em
on the shady side of the street

the people on my side, don't mind if I
pickin' on my porch, laughin loud and getting high
don't know bout them over there
I cough at their second hand stares
I'd offer them a front porch seat, but
they don't like my kind

we live on the shady side of the street
where the deadend people of the world meet
and everybody here wants to keep out of the heat
on the shady side of the street
