Willie Nelson - On The Street Where You Live Lyrics

I have often walked down the street before
But the pavement always
Stayed beneath my feet before

All at once am I
Several stories high
Knowing I'm on the street where you live

Are there lilac trees
In the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?

Does enchantment pour
Out of every door?
No, it's just on the street where you live

And oh, the towering feeling
Just to know somehow you are near
The overpowering feeling
That any second you may suddenly appear

People stop and stare
They don't bother me
For there's no where else on earth
That I would rather be

Let the time go by
I won't care if I
Can be here on the street where you live

People stop and stare
They don't bother me
For there's no where else on earth
That I would rather be

Let the time go by
I won't care if I
Can be here on the street where you live
Let me be on the street where you live

  8. John Deebank

    Shame that Billcoxyz1956 didnt enjoy this late 50's song.  I remember hearing it on the radio at that time.  Cant blame Willy on the way it was written.  Im assuming the 1956 at the end of his name would put at the right time it was sung.  Oh well,  it was pleasing to the masses.............John. D.

    What a pleasantly surprising version of this classic old song, presented by one of America's most talented interpreters of vocal music! I had not imagined the song being presented this way, and it is excellent. Thanks, Willie Nelson, for sharing this with the rest of us!

    I love Willie Nelson! I have never been disappointed with anything he has done. His contribution to extending the longevity of these classics provides memories of when music was music with understandable lyrics and rhythm. Thanks for this post. It's one song I had never heard him do.

    With all my respect to WN fans, I think Nat King Cole sang this song best after Mario Lanza...
