Lyrics
Young man made it to the city
Searching through the wet streets
Looking for a rock 'n' roll band
Caught the rip off train to freedom
A line of agents holding out their hand
Work your asses off forever
Midnight highways really bring you down
But you're there and you're working
So don't complain so many miss the train
Chorus
Find a sound lay it down
They say it's underground
Starts to sell do it well
But you never can tell
Now the young man's star shines brightly
Breaking hearts his records in the charts
Finds it hard to freak twice nightly
Falls in love the hardest fall of all
Chorus
He was just a lonely boy
A very well known clown
He was just a lonely boy and down
Chorus
