about

This is a Knoxville song.

lyrics

Well, the west side is rich and the east side is poor
It's hard to get home when you're drunk on the floor
And someone's insulted your most sainted whore
La di da di da da

The north side is way out and the south side is down
it's hard to drive straight with your head spinnin' around
and your lover tells everyone you're just a clown
La di da di da da

Chorus:
Crosstown is too far away from you
and I only feel at home when I'm with you
Please tell now what in the world should I do
cuz crosstown is too far away from you

Downtown is copper and the county is brass
& you wonder will I ever get up off my ass
& the devil on my shoulder says you're out of my class
La di da di da da

Main Street goes straight through, the bypass goes around
and everyone questions the truth in my frown
The question on my mind, "Do you wanna get down?"
La di da di da da

-- Chorus --

Well, the west side is rich and the east side is poor
It's hard to get home when you're drunk on the floor
The north side is way out and the south side
it's hard to drive straight with your head spinnin' around

I'm sitting here in my room on one side
thinkin' about you and takin' that ride

-- Chorus --
