I know these streets and these backyards
This barn that's falling down
We come to where they're buildin' now
And ride our bikes around

You think I'm just a little kid
Some trouble's on the way
But I knew this place before you did
Is all I've got to say

I'm only walkin'
Through these streets and all around
I'm only walkin'
I know this town

We come home through these fields at night
About a million times
I'd walk the road with my eyes closed
And all the paths besides

And I know the boy who broke this fence
And I know his brother, too
And they'd never give me half a chance
If I let on to you

I'm only walkin'
Through these streets and all around
I'm only walkin'
I know this town
I know this town

I know
I know
I know

We dam the streams, we raid the shacks
And hide in boxcars on the tracks
We know these quarries in our sleep
And where they're cold and where they're deep

I know
I know
I know

I'll go down to the bowling alley
And buy smokes and dentyne
I find some loose change every day
Under that coke machine

You check me out as you drive by
Like there was some big deal
But I know so much you'll never find
From there behind the wheel
(Behind the wheel)

I'm only walkin'
Through these streets and all around
I'm only walkin'
I know this town

I know this town
I know this town
I know this town
