We go down to that corner
We go down to meet our ball and chain
We go down to that corner
And the road back home is never the same
We go down like sinking suns
Bleeding light on everyone.
Like the hammer of that gun, we go down

We go down to that corner when our heavy hearts have heard the sound
Down to that corner, and the next you know we are down for the count
And there are oceans in our shoes, and the way the mountains move
As the earth is split in two, we all fall down

We went down to that corner when the grated road would shake her
Like a lonely undertaker, pulling over to the shoulder
And with no one there to hold her, I can see her still inside dreams,
And a canopy of concrete, seeking cover of the I-beams
Or the speed of the express lanes
In remembrance of ashtrays, burning bright as better past days,
Sunken skeletons in closets, nursing bones broken by promise
I said

Cheer up, baby, cheer up

The horizon's getting near, up there ahead

We went down to that corner, we went down to free our ball and our chain
