Cletis Carr Low Rent Part Of Town Lyrics

Last updated: 08/30/2011 11:00:00 AM

My family ain't got money, I still wear hand-me-downs
We live in a shack by the freight train track
In the low rent part of town

My girl that I wanna marry, she's from a wealthy background
She can't date or associate with a boy
From the low rent part of town

Some day we'll be together, she'll wear that wedding gown
Until then I'll spend my days, in the low rent part of town

I got me a job with the circus, working the merry-go-round
It's the best I can do cause they closed all the schools
In the low rent part of town
I saved up all my money, so I could take her for a big night out
But her dad said go back to my own kind
In the low rent part of town

Some day we'll be together, she'll wear that wedding gown
Until then I'll spend my days, in the low rent part of town

In this world, there's two kinds of people, those with money and those without
And I'll scrimp and scrape so I can escape,
From the low rent part of town

I hope we'll be together, I hope she'll wear that gown
I'll spend my days and my lonely nights
In the low rent part of town

Some day we'll be together, she'll wear that wedding gown
Until then I'll spend my days
In the low rent part of town
