Old Musician Store

Lyrics

they’re packing their bags they’re headed for the shore

the old musician store is up for sale

where will the kids go with no musician store

 

the sales have been slow at the old musician store

the rent keeps getting high always more and more

but they can’t give anymore at the old musician store

 

the guitars on the wall have seen the best of years

they fought for what was right and sometimes whatever was wrong

now the cases are closed

 

the parking lot’s empty outside the old musician store

the cigarettes all swept away from in front of the door babe

time to clean up the old musician store

 

go on inside now take a look for yourself

whether old or middle aged or newly born the ghosts are all there

now that the sign is hung

 

in twenty more years will there be musician stores

or will we live all by ourselves with no real music alone in the dark

no need to talk to anyone no musician store

no need to learn from anyone no musician store

no need to marvel anymore no musician store
