Revisionism Street - Bob Seger

I saw them standing on a corner

1d
Bathed in ordinary light

29
They turned away and started walkin'

21
And faded off into the night

28
Some years ago they were in fashion

25
Tonight they couldn't get a seat

2f
They've got themselves a brand new history

1c
From revisionism street

22
Written on revisionism street

5


28
The years of sacrifice and struggle

28
The arc of stardom's natural course

1b
The inevitable decline

23
The wolves waiting at the door

34
"let's dig up something really nasty"

36
"let's get some clay around their feet"

2f
"no ones memory is sacred 'round here

20
On revisionism street"

2c
"we'll never be in the arena"

31
"hey, we'll never have to compete"

32
"we'll never write a classic novel"

35
"and we'll never have to be discreet!"

23
Alfred hitchcock, isaac newton

21
Elvis presley, captain bligh

1f
They're heroic or pathetic

24
Depending on which book you buy

24
Charles d_ckens, jackie gleason

23
Burn 'em all, turn up the heat

26
If there's no truth, use innuendo

1f
This is revisionism street

3b
"let's find ourselves some old acquaintance"

30
"let's see what they have to say"

2d
"some disgruntled ex-employee"

20
"presto! payday!"

5


1f
A tree falls in the forest

21
A million copies go to print

21
Some parasitic little feeder

1f
Sits back and makes a mint

27
Somewhere a baby's softly sleeping

1c
Lt's innocence complete

29
Unaware they're workin' late tonight
