Mickey Newbury – Easy Street lyrics

I rewrote this one 'cause I couldn't remember the lyrics to it.

Well, Easy Street,
I'd like to live on Easy Street.
If I could live on Easy Street,
I wouldn't have to sing the blues all day.

Easy Street, ain't no street
Can compete with Easy Street.
One day I will live on Easy Street.
And the sunshine will shine all day.

Yes, on Easy Street,
You're friends with everyone you meet.
Oh, and life is so sweet.
When you can live on Easy Street.

Oh, Easy Street,
I've got to live on Easy Street.
Let me live on Easy Street.
Don't wanna sing these blues all day.


Easy Street,
Oh, I wanna live on Easy Street.
Just let me live on Easy Street,
Where the sunshine shines all day.
