Rose City

This song is by Todd Snider and appears on the album New Connection (2002).

Snider

We wrote our names in the tunnel back when
Coos Bay was as far away as we'd ever been
Pine trees climbing up winding hills
Fishing boats and paper mills.

Multnomah County's where I come from
Hometown to Bigfoot and the Burnside bums
Rain clouds hangin' down low and grey
God knows I wish it would have rained today.

Tonight I've got those old Rose City blues
Tonight I've got those old Rose City blues.

Tonight I'm drivin' through some other town
Radio on with the windows down
Old song comes on from a long time ago
How on earth did that DJ know?

Tonight I've got those old Rose City blues
Tonight I've got those old Rose City blues.

Rain rain rain
Pouring rain doesn't bother me.

We wrote our names in the tunnel back then
And last night we went down and did it again
One sip too many from that old loving cup
Rose City people never do grow up.

Tonight I've got those old Rose City blues
Tonight I've got those old Rose City blues.
