(Tony Hatch)

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go downtown
When you've got worries all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help I know downtown.

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose, the lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares.

So go downtown things'll be great
When you're downtown
No finer place for sure
Downtown, everything's waiting for you..

Now don't hang around
and let your problems surround you
There are movie shows downtown
Maybe you know some little places to go
to where they never close downtown.

Just listen to the rhythm of the gentle bosa nova
You'll be dancing with them too
Before the night gets over happy again
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles forget all your cares
So go downtown where all the lights are bright
downtown waiting for you tonight
Downtown you're gonna be all right now.

--- Instrumental ---

And you'll may find somebody kind
to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you
And needs a gentle hand to guide them along.

So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles forget all our cares
So go downtown things will be great
when you're downtown don't wait a minute for
Downtown everything's waiting for you...
This song is from the album "Born to Sing (Bear Family (Germany))", "Downtown Country [RCA Victor]" and "City Lights [Camden]".
