East Of Gary


by Darrell Scott. Buy album CD: Theatre Of The Unheard


I grew up on the Indiana side of Chicago
With the rusty steel mills belching in the westward wind
I watched Mom and Dad trying to clean their sorrow
With my brothers and me at old Lake Michigan

Thereís a little boy
Heís got big brown eyes
Heís got swimming trunks Ďbout twice his size
Looking at a steel mill sunset
Skipping a stone, "hey, ainít you a little young
To feel so alone?"

Well they changed the name of my hometown
When we moved away
Now itís more than words that I donít recognize
That kid down at the filling station
Tried to keep my change from a twenty
I could see that cold assurance in his eyes
Hey you need ten dollars for the rainy day?
Save and go to college or just get away
Or you could spend that money on a two-day stone
Oh, there are worse things in this world than being alone
Let me tell you nowÖ

So, if youíre driving from Chicago, east of Gary
And you find a fallen town that has two names
Thereíll be no one to possibly remember
A little lonesome brown-eyed boy who went by James

Oh the millís shut down
But the airís still sour
You get a hotel room
You gotta pay by the hour
Oh the good old days are just good and gone
Like autumn leaves on a burning lawn

I grew up on the Indiana side of Chicago
With the rusty steel mills belching in the westward wind
