Living on Straight Street

Straight Street

Ry Cooder

Well I used to live on Broadway 

Right next to the liar’s house

My number was self-righteousness 

And a very little guide of mouth

So I moved, I moved 

And I’m living on straight street now

I moved, I had moved

I’m living on straight street now

Before I moved over

Let me tell you how it was with me

Old Satan had me bound in chains 

And I had no liberty

One day my heart got troubled 

All about my dwelling place

I heard the Lord when He spoke to me 

And he told me to leave that place

So I moved, I moved 

And I’m living on straight street now

Yes, I moved, I moved

Well, I’m living on straight street now

Since I moved, I’m really living

I’ve got peace within

I thank the Lord for everything

So glad I found new friends

Since I moved, I moved 

And I’m living on straight…
