It's late and I'm waiting and by now he should be home
I've walked the floor for hours listening for the telephone
But he's always weak with dreams so strong and I guess he'll always be
What's made Milwaukee famous has made a loser out of me
Though I've begged him not to go so many times before
I've told him love and happiness can't live behind those swinging doors
I hate to see him live this way but I just can't set him free
What's made Milwaukee famous has made a loser out of me
[ harmonica ]
Though I've begged him not to go...
What's made Milwaukee famous has made a loser out of me
