Lyrics

3 Young Alleycats sittin’ on a fence trying to find a way to make their rents

It don’t take much, but it takes all we got

So we show up for work at the Lumberyard, the money’s not bad, the work’s not hard

But it’s gonna take a few more two-steps to get out of here

 

Watching the stars rise and fall

don’t it seem like the universe used to be a little bit smaller way back when

Now the universe will never be the same again

 

At the fork in the road there’s a Hole in the Wall, the stage is set, but it’s kinda small

Hey, I think I heard someone singing my song

Country loving doesn't hold the key, but there’s something in her eyes I see

Something so rare when she sings

 

Watching the stars rise and fall

don’t it seem like the universe used to be a little bit smaller way back when

Now the universe will never be the same again

  

We’re all passing time

Who knows just what we’ll find

We’ll all be paid in kind

 

Now the dust is settled, the wind is blown, the ashes are scattered, and the kids are grown

And how long we can howl at the moon no one can tell

I’m not prepared for the rockin’ chair, I heard that thing ain’t going nowhere

So Rick, Richard and Levon won’t you wait a spell

 

Watching the stars rise and fall

don’t it seem like the universe used to be a little bit smaller way back when

Now the universe will never be the same again
