Maybe I'm bound to wander From one place to the next Heaven knows why
But in the wild blue yonder Your star is fixed In my sky
Just another bar, at a cross roads So far from home But that's alright Whenever I'm going down the dark road I don't feel alone in the night
There's a place in my heart Though we're far apart May you always know? No matter how long since I saw you I keep the flame there for you Wherever I go
They're looking too close up in here Pulling down the blinds But they'll let you stay a while And I'm going, in a while
Now I've got leave you, brother So this round's mine Just looking at you, anyhow You can go on and have another You wouldn't, call time I'm gonna say my goodbye's now
There's a place in my heart Though we're far apart May you always, know? No matter how long since I saw you I keep the flame there for you Wherever I go

The line in John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" that sounds like "that's when a smoke was a smoke" is actually "that's when a sport was a sport," according to the published lyric. In that sense, "sport" is an endearment for someone of good nature.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
