Small screen July evening view
Up and down Grand Avenue
Where the legends get made
Out with the boy's brigade
Part of the motorcade

Flew home from Texas last night
Slept on the flight
Work like a dog all day
Born to chase cars away
Die on the road some day

I try to remember what life was like long ago
But it’s gone, you know?

Climb the turnbuckle high
Take two falls out of three
Blackout for local TV

Stand in that cold empty hall
Wait for your name to get called
Burn like hillsides on fire
In the squall of the ringside choir
High as a wire

Nearly drive Danny’s nose back into his brain
All the cheap seats go insane

Keep my eyes open and try to think straight
No one drives on the 60 this late
I feel like the last person alive
Francisquito to Glenshaw Drive

I try to remember to write in the diary
That my son gave me

Climb the turnbuckle high
Take two falls out of three
Blackout for local TV

    General CommentGrand avenue perhaps refering to the Grand Olympic Auditorium in LA, where thousands of concerts, boxing and wrestling events were held from 1924 until 2005 (now it's a church).
