Poor Jody

Poor Jody, standin' on the same old corner,
It don't seem like the same old town. 
You dreamed of the good life 
Where a man could walk alone, 
Walked out on a good wife 
Oh it's too late, she's gone. 
Poor Jody, leanin' on the same old lamp post 
Watchin' the buses goin' up town 
Me and the neighborhood are feeling rundown 
Poor Jody... Don't seem like the same old town. 

You're the last of the old gang, the last hanger-on. 
The years seem to fly by, oh, where have they gone 
Poor Jody, leanin' on the same old lamp post 
Watchin' the buses goin' up town 
Me and the neighborhood are feeling rundown 
Poor Jody... Don't seem like the same old town...
Poor Jody poor Jody poor Jody poor Jody
