Planet P Project – Freemont Street lyrics

In the year nineteen-five
An acre of nevada cost a dollar twenty-five
Over there in hollywoodland
Nobody cared about rattlesnakes and sand
The came the government put up hoover dam
If you got in early you were a fortunate man
You were a fortunate man

And out there in hollywood
Siegel got busy while the gettin' was good
About that time my family drove out west
In a brand-new packard, only the best
Grandaddy was a gamblin' man
How could he lose with all that land

And we, we could have been millionaires
Could've owned that place
Coulda gone anywhere
I guess some people get crazy from the heat
The drinks are on the house you get wobbly on your feet
Even though you got a system that can't be beat
You leave it on the tables on fremont street

My daddy met my mama at las vegas high
They said 'let's get married and give it a try'
Couple years later there were three little kids
Leavin' that place was the best thing they ever did
We got in the car and drove off fast
I heard my dad say 'free at last'

And we should have been millionaires
Should've owned that whole damn town
Shoulda gone anywhere
But sometimes you get a little crazy from the heat
The drinks are on the house, you get a little wobbly on your feet
And though you've got a system that can't be beat
You leave your money on the table
On fremont street
On fremont street

(Repeat refrain)
