Grateful Dead – Shakedown Street lyrics

You tell me this town aint got no heart. Well, well, well, you can never tell.
The sunny side of the street is dark. Well, well, well, you can never tell.
Maybe that's cause its midnight, in the dark of the moon besides.

Maybe the dark is from your eyes, maybe the dark is from your eyes,
Maybe the dark is from your eyes, maybe the dark is from your eyes,
Maybe the dark is from your eyes, maybe the dark is from your eyes,
You know you got such dark eyes!

Nothin shakin on shakedown street. Used to be the heart of town.
Don't tell me this town aint got no heart. You just gotta poke around.

You think youve seen this town clear through.
Well, well, well, you can never tell.
Nothin here that could intrest you. Well, well, well, you can never tell.
Its not because you missed out on the thing that we had to start.

Maybe you had too much too fast. Maybe you had too much too fast.
Maybe you had too much too fast. Maybe you had too much too fast.
Maybe you had too much too fast. Maybe you had too much too fast.
Or just over played your part.

Nothin shakin on shakedown street. Used to be the heart of town.
Don't tell me this town aint got no heart. You just gotta poke around.

Since I'm passing your way today. Well, well, well, you can never tell.
I just stopped in cause I want to say, well, well, well, you can never tell.
I recall your darkness when it crackled like a thundercloud.

Don't tell me this town aint got no heart.
Don't tell me this town aint got no heart.
Don't tell me this town aint got no heart.
Don't tell me this town aint got no heart.
Don't tell me this town aint got no heart.
Don't tell me this town aint got no heart.
When I can hear it beat out loud!

Nothin shakin on shakedown street. Used to be the heart of town.
Don't tell me this town aint got no heart. You just gotta poke around.
