John Illsley – So It Goes Lyrics

Railway tracks running past the door
Just one chair and a concrete floor
Rusty cars in a council yard
Star cafe and a union bar

Life just shifted to another plain
Nothing will ever be the same
A million miles from those country roads
But that's the life and so it goes

The wild west end
With your wild best friend
Not a lot to see
In the gallery

World of glass a world of stone
Not the place you want to be alone
Bluesmen cruise from show to show
Through the streets of Buffalo

Jack Daniels in a downtown bar
Playing tunes on a blonde guitar

Now it all seems so long ago
But that's the life and so it goes

The wild west end
With your wild best friend
Not a lot to see
In the gallery
Now we're dancing to a different tune
Under the glow of Harvest Moon
In your heart dreams are made
Time moves fast and memories fade

I still remember the ice and snow
On the streets of Buffalo
There's so much we'll never know
But that's the life and so it goes

The wild west end
With your wild best friend
Not a lot to see
In the gallery
