Gates Of The West - The Clash

words to study

I would love to be the lucky one on chill avenue

Who could keep your heart warm when ice has turned it blue

But with the beggin' sleeping losers as they turn in for the night

I'm looking back for home and I can see the lights

I should be jumpin' shoutin' that I made it all this way

From Camden town station to 44th and 8th

Not many make it this far and many say we're great

But just like them we walk on an' we can't escape our fate

Can't you hear the sighing

Eastside Jimmy and Southside Sue

Both say they needed something new

So I'm standing at the gates of the west
