Jerry Lee Lewis – Shantytown lyrics

Shantytown
Writer Johnny Cash - June Carter
" © '67 Anne Rachel Music, ascap / Song Of Cash Music, ascap "

(I live down in Shantytown where chicken's twenty cents a pound)
And if you live on such solid ground whatcha doin' down in Shantytown
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown
Well I'm back on your side of the tracks
Have come back for me to take you back
Back to your high society to your coctails and your teas
I'll look up but don't look down cause we got pride in Shantytown
(I live down in Shantytown...
Behind the walls of your shackled heart beats pure
While the rich have a love to endure
Well is the gold in your crown turning black
Is there something here in Shantytown that keeps you coming back
I live down in Shantytown...
