down on the gulf coast, where they rock 'n' roll,
i leaned a little while up against a barber poll.
stood there like that 'til the sun went down.
lost a quart of blood since tuesday.
light in the doorways,
light up the streets of this town.

and when they cut loose, you gotta stand back.
you gotta reinforce the places that they're likely to attack.
i spent the whole week down at st. vincent de paul,
wholly immersed in prayer and

down where the river rushes into the sea,
i didn't let 'em get the best of me.
i didn't let 'em take the very best part --
the last lone bit of light left flickering in my heart.
