Lyrics for the Day – Lake Shore Drive

It’s been tough getting adjusted to the great band, Lake Street Dive. It was always Lake Shore Drive to me – Aliotta, Haynes & Jeremiah

There’s a road I’d like to tell you about
Lives in my home town
Lake Shore Drive the road is called
And it’ll take you up or down
From rags on up to riches
Fifteen minutes you can fly
Pretty blue lights along the way
Help you right on by
And the blue lights shining with a heavenly grace
Help you right on by

And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore Drive
Heading into town
Just slippin’ on by on LSD
Friday night trouble bound

And it starts up north from Hollywood
Water on the driving side
Concrete mountains rearing up
Throwing shadows just about five
Sometimes you can smell the green
If your mind is feeling fine
There ain’t no finer place to be
Than running Lake Shore Drive
And there’s no peace of mind
Or place you see than riding on Lake Shore Drive

And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore Drive
Heading into town
Just slicking on by on LSD
Friday night trouble bound

And it’s Friday night and you’re looking clean
Too early to start the rounds
A ten minute ride from the Gold Coast back
Make sure you’re pleasure bound
And it’s four o’clock in the morning
And all of the people have gone away
Just you and your mind and Lake Shore Drive
Tomorrow is another day
And the sunshine’s fine in the morning time
Tomorrow is another day

And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore Drive
Heading into town
Just snaking on by on LSD
Friday night trouble bound
