One, two
A one, two

When I'm sad and blue
An' I'm feelin' all alone
There's a place then I go to
That no one knows
Where no matter what I do
Won't nobody put me down
That's why I'm goin' to
The other side of town

On the other side of town
Where the sun don't ever shine
Everybody walks around
With a shadow 'cross their minds
When that midnight train rolls by
And they hear that lonesome sound
They just hang their heads and cry
On the other side of town

Well, it isn't very far
An' it's not that hard to find
You just follow all the other lonely souls
Take a walk down lonesome lane
'Til you see the dead end sign
And your broken heart will tell you where to go

To the other side of town
Where the sun don't ever shine
Everybody walks around
With a shadow 'cross their minds
When that midnight train rolls by
An' they hear that lonesome sound
They just hang their heads and cry
On the other side of town
Hoo

So if you'll find someone
Who won't ever let you down
Hurry home before the sun goes down
An' no matter what you do
Don't let night fall like a shroud
An' catch you on the other side of town

On the other side of town
Where the sun don't ever shine
Everybody walks around
With a shadow 'cross their minds
When that midnight train rolls by
An' they hear that lonesome sound
They just hang their heads and cry
On the other side of town
