Down in the Milltown - John Gorka

    When my shift is over
    And I'm headed home
    I don't listen to the radio
    I like to be alone [repeat]

    I've had my fill of people
    And all that factory noise
    I listen to the engine
    It's a sound that I enjoy [repeat]

    I drive on past the drive-in
    On past the movie lights
    Past the fenced-in fantasies
    That slip into the night
    I slip into the night

    Down in the milltown
    The milltown so low
    Hang your head over
    Feel the wind blow

    I wonder what's for dinner
    If she'll be waiting there
    She has to wake up early
    She has to do her hair [repeat]

    And if I need a cold one
    There's a tavern up the street
    The company of loners
    Is still company to me
    They're company to me

    And if my dreams treat me badly
    And I cry out at night
    Shake me to my senses
    And I will be alright
    I will be alright (Chorus twice)
