The Hangtown Walk Lyrics


Hangtown I was only a kid,
I had a wild stray talker at the end of his bid
I had to get out, I had to go for a walk,
I had to walk fast, there was nothing to talk about.
A shakedown and I got to survive,
I got to make time, I got to get out alive.


I walked half way with my thumb in the air,
I caught a fast ride and I was already there
It was a cold call and it was already wet,
there was a snow falling but I'll never forget
the way he walked in with his hand on the wall,
he took the last room at the end of the hall.


They said he wont drink, and he won't even smoke,
He got a white slave monkey at the end of a rope
He played fast darts and spoke in flat Chinese and sat
cross legged with his hands on his knees
He got street eyes with a capitol look,
He burned green tea as he read from a book
He took a big drink from a big black jug,
and drew a white smile as he sat on the rug


He said I don't drink and I don't even smoke,
I would laugh now but I don't get the joke
You need to get out you need to go for a walk,
you need to walk fast but you don't need to talk.
Cuz there's a shakedown and you want to survive,
you can tell them all about it if you get out alive


He said walk on, he said get on
He said walk on, time to step aside
He said get on whatever you decide
He said walk on, and take it all in stride
he said get on there's nothing left to hide

I said thank you but I got it in my head,
I said thank you but they left me here for dead
I said thank you but I'm riding it out
I said I don't need it so I don't care about it
now I just need to find my way in the darká
and I will meet you in December at the Hangtown Park
and I walked on

Lyrics to Waiting While You're Thinking


You weigh your anchor in the morning
and throw your sheet into the sky
Who knows how long I will be waiting
Who knows how far that bird will fly

and I'm just waiting while you're thinking
so I'm thinking way too long
and you're just watching while I'm sinking...
the wind won't blow and you never know
Where you go.... when you're gone

How can we hope to see tomorrow
If we can't reach the other side
was it something I believed in
or just a tear I couldn't hide

and I can't watch it fall to pieces
nothing's right but nothing's wrong
Who knows how long before it's over
hell I'm afraid it won't be long

cuz you're just watching while I'm sinking
and you ain't filling any holes
and I'm just waiting while you're thinking
the wind won't blow and you never know
Where you go.... when you're gone

Lyrics to Fire In Your Heart

Well there's something you told me and it got a hold of me
every day there's something to say in a song
You take my hand and say you understand
but I know you're wrong I know it won't be long
Well you got it in your head and it's like I always said
it's colder when you're older but i know you're learnin unabated
You nearly made it.

Well you took the world and you don't regret it
and you found the word and you won't forget it
Well the motor still turns and the fire still burns
and the wheels keep on turnin
and the fire keeps a burnin in your heart
You can hear the tolling of a bell in your soul
and the well isn't deeper than the hole
you've been feeling in the bottom of your heart

There's a wind in your hair but you're going nowhere
and the fire in your eyes didn't burn like the fire in your heart
There's a breeze in the trees and you're weaker in the knees
than you ever could have seen you were ever gonna be from the start

You got the midnight blues in the middle of the cruise
and your wheels keep turning and the fire keeps on burning in your heart
You were going slow....now you're on a roll...
but you never know a fire
like the fire that's burning in your soul
it keeps on burnin / you keep on learnin'

Lyrics to "My Brother's Smile" by Mari Mack and "Livin' Like Kings"


To purchase this song or the entire album (name your own price) go to Bandcamp

My brother's smile
Come walkin' through the doorway
in a tight black t-shirt and a pair of jeans

My brother's smile
In the habit of appearin' halfway through
sippin' one of Mr. Cardy's egg creams

As he finds his way down Union to Prospect Street
A skip in his stride, light on his feet
In the middle of doin' nothing
Ah - so good to see

My brother's smile
lighten up the darkest of my days
My brother's smile
cheer me up in oh, so many ways
I don't know about you
But I don't know what I would do
without my brother's smile

At twenty two
No one's really sure 'bout what he did
mixing liquor and pills and messin' with a gun

And that .22
was enough to make a mess of that kid
We prayed that he'd make it
but the damage had been done

We made our way down Union to Prospect street
Grandma's head hung down, Pop was draggin' his feet
Sorrow came on so sudden
To think I would never see

My brother's smile
to lighten up the darkest of my days
My brother's smile
to cheer me up in oh so many ways
And I've got to tell you true
I don't know what I'm gonna do
without my brother's smile.

Bridge:

And with almost twenty years gone by
A friend let go of a long held secret as he started to cry,
"Cant hold this in any longer -- I think it's time you got to meet your brother's daughter"

I watched her walk down Union to Prospect Street
The light in her eyes made my heart skip a beat
I stood there staring in wonder
My mind flooded with memories (of)

My brother's smile
to lighten up the darkest of my days
My brother's smile
to cheer me up in oh so many ways
My brother's smile
would lighten up the darkest of my days
My brother's smile
could cheer me up in oh so many ways

Now I can't believe I'm sitting here
Across the table from my brother's smile

No I can't believe I'm sitting here
Across the table from my brother's smile
