"Alley Flowers" as written by and Jolie R Holland....
Some people say you got a psychadelic presence, shinin in the park with a bioluminescense, down these city streets I see you comin from afar and I know in this world ain't nobody's got the shine like you got to shine in this world ain't nobody's got the shine like you got to shine in this world

nobody sings like Mary Sue Bell, nobody prays like Willie MacTell, nobody walks a mile in my stolen shoes like I do--in this world ain't nobody's got the shine like you, got to shine in this world ain't nobody's got the shine like you got to shine in this world

I still miss my lonesome lover and I cain't find no single other to take his empty place in my heart of hearts--I told him, in this world ain't nobody's got the shine like you got to shine in this world ain't nobody's got the shine like you got to shine in this world

the ghost of Shakespeare's on the street, corderoy hat layin at his feet, howlin in the harp these dirty city blues fallin hard-in this world ain't nobody's got the shine like you got to shine in this world ain't nobody's got the shine like you got to shine in this world

Zora Neale Hurston told her story and they kicked her out of new york city just like jesus christ in gallilee, like I said, in this world ain't nobody's got the shine like you got to shine in this world ain't nobody's got the shine like you got to shine in this world

some people say I got a psychadelic presence shinin in the park with a bioluminescense, down these city streets I see you comin from afar, and I know, ain't nobody's got the shine like you got to shine in this world ain't nobody's got the shine like you got to shine in this world.
