Kickback City - Rory Gallagher

They say this town will kill you,
They say this town ain't got no soul.
This town could take a child's smile,
And turn it into stone.

But don't you think I know that,
This place has cut me to the bone.
Trouble crawling up your back.
Fear just eats your soul.

You say this town will eat you up,
You say this town don't have a heart.
You try and learn all your lines,
And you try to play the part.

With all this double dealing,
I tell you brother, you get smart.
Here in kickback city,
You're lost before you start.

People in subways,
Look nearly half dazed to me.
Renting tomorrow, investing in sorrow,
No belief....yeah....

Faces in sidestreets,
Hiding like angels from grace.
Selling you sorrow, renting tomorrow,
You're out of place...yeah...

They say this town will kill you,
They say this town ain't got no soul.
They'll set you up and pull the stitch,
'Till you're unravelled on the floor.

But I won't let it beat me,
Though trouble's knocking at my door.
Somehow it's just your smile,
That keeps me coming back for more.

Yeah...

Here in Kickback City,
Feel I'm goin' down slow.
Here in Kickback City,
Feel I'm goin' down slow.

Yeah....
