Song A Week #6 "Woke Up In Cleveland" Jeff Powers

A song of frustration with the Old Cleveland where nothing progressed and nothing changed but the politicians kept promising. It's also a song of frustration with certain people in my life. Cleveland is now a beautiful City with so much to do and see.

Woke Up In Cleveland© 2013 music/lyrics Jeff Powers

Woke up in Cleveland       
Blues pourin' down'
Can stand the weather
Gonna ride down south

Woke up in Cleveland
Looked all around
Can't find a friend
(Ya know) I checked at the lost and found

Broken promises            
Broken dreams
Broken pieces
Broken wings             

I woke up in Cleveland
Searched hi and low
No matter where I looked
It was a dog and pony show

I woke up in Cleveland
They say a change is gonna come
I hear the same ol' lies
Hear from the same ol' scum

Broken promises     
Broken dreams
Broken pieces
Broken wings

Woke up in Cleveland  
Blues all around
I see no other colors
Hear no other sounds

Woke up in Cleveland
Drag me on down
A storm raging off the lake 
Gonna ride ol' Greyhound
