Song Lyrics

I remember standing on the corner at midnight

Trying to get my courage up

There was this long lovely dancer in a little club downtown

I loved to watch her do her stuff

Through the long lonely nights she filled my sleep

Her body softly swaying to that smoky beat

Down on Mainstreet

In the pool halls, the hustlers and the losers

I used to watch `em through the glass

Well I`d stand outside at closing time

Just to watch her walk on past

Unlike all the other ladies, she looked so young and sweet

As she made her way alone down that empty street

Down on Mainstreet

And sometimes even now, when I`m feeling lonely and beat

I drift back in time and I find my feet

Down on Mainstreet

Down on Mainstreet
