Lou Rawls On Broadway Lyrics

They say the neon lights are bright

On Broadway

They say there’s always magic in the air

But when you’re walkin’ down that street

And you ain’t got enough to eat

The glitter rubs right off and you’re nowhere

They say the chicks are somethin’ else

On Broadway

But lookin’ at them just gives me the blues

‘Cause how ya gonna make some time

When all you got is one thin dime

And one thin dime won’t even shine your shoes

They say that I won’t last too long

On Broadway

I’ll catch a Greyhound bus for home they all say

But they’re dead wrong, I know they are

‘Cause I can play this here guitar

And I won’t quit till I’m a star

On Broadway

But they’re dead wrong, I know they are

‘Cause I can play this here guitar

And I won’t quit till I’m a star

On Broadway

On Broadway

I’m gonna make it, yeah

On Broadway

I’ll be a big, big man

On Broadway

I’ll have my name in lights

On Broadway

Everybody gonna know me

On Broadway

All up and down Broadway

On Broadway
