  • Dry bread on the table
    Burn the mill salt the paper

    [Chorus]
    And its easy pick-ins on Locust Street
    There's no place to hide
    And you can't find love on Locust Street
    But you can hear the sunrise crying
    Can't you hear the sunrise crying
    A song for you alone

    Sad eyes, weeping willow
    Black cat blues, blacked out window

    [Chorus]

    Just a glimpse of what love could be
    Once a dream that I owned
    What of many lonely longing souls
    At least I'm not alone
    Well at least I'm not alone

    Ripe off the vine now lay rotten
    Like a dead end street forever forgotten

    [Chorus]

    A song for you alone Writer/s: CHRIS ROBINSON, CHRISTOPHER MARK ROBINSON, RICH ROBINSON, RICHARD S. ROBINSON
