Standing out on Main Street across from Mr. Blue's
My faded leather jacket, my weathered Brogan shoes
A chill north wind was blowin' but the spring was comin' on
As I wondered to myself just how long I had been gone
So I strolled across old Main Street, walked down a flight of stairs
Stepped into the hall and saw all my friends were there
The neon sign was flashing "Welcome, come on in!"
It feels so good,
I'm feelin' good again

My favorite band was playing
An Otis Redding song
When they sang the chorus everybody sang along
Dan and Margarita were swaying side by side
I heard they were divorcin' but I guess they let it slide
And I wished I had some money with which to buy a round
I wish I'd cashed my paycheck before I came to town
But I reached into my pocket,
Found three twenties and a ten
It feels so good,
I'm feelin' good again

There was Old Man Perkins a-sittin' on a stool
Watchin' Butch and Jimmy John talkin' loud and playin' pool
The boys from Silver City were standing by the fire
Singin' like they thought they were the Tabernacle choir
And I wanted you to see 'em all,
I wished that you were there
I looked across the room and saw you standin' on the stairs
And when I caught your eye I saw you break into a grin
It feels so good
Feelin' good again

I wanted you to see 'em all,
I wished that you were there
I looked across the room and saw you standin' on the stair
And when I caught your eye
I saw you break into a grin
It feels so good,
Feelin' good again

    General CommentI always thought this song was about coming out of a depression. But, either way, this song always makes me happy when I listen to it, and reminds me of good times.
