ON THE EASTSIDE
Words and music by Deb E. Dee
E
Double -decker freeway in the middle of town
E7 B B7
In the red hot summer when the sun beats down
E7
On The Eastside of downtown Austin.
B B7
You take your concrete back to Boston.
E E7
You take your cowboys and your taco hell;
B B7
We got the salsa good and hot; well, well.


Down on Chicon there are the music and lights-

Palleterias and the flowers of the sky.

All mis amigos and a way to get by;

The kinda music take you eight miles high!

Down on the Eastside of downtown Austin;

You take your concrete back to Boston.

You take your knock-offs of Brittany Spears.

We got Selena and we like it here.


Little sister by the tank farm, Mommy.

I'll get a scholarship; not join the army.

I'll get an education- that's for sure.

Nuestras familias- we will endure!

Down on The Eastside of downtown Austin.

You take your concrete back to Boston

Your corporate hootchie man Italian shoes-

All the rest of us are hangin' loose.


If you go dancin' to the groovy sounds

Of jazz and blues and like to get on down

To East 11th and The Victory Grill;

Great artists right up close- it's such a thrill!

If you get hungry in the middle of the night-

Go down on 12th Street ; you will see some sights!

That sweet aroma gonna make you drool

For miles around - it's Sam's Barbecue!


Down on The eastside of downtown Austin

You take you concrete back to Boston-

You take your cowboys that are givin' me hell-

Ill still be standin at the final bell

Down on The Eastside of downtown Austin

You take your concrete back to Boston-

You take your cowboys and your taco hell-

We got the salsa good and hot; well, well!
