Loving Don't Come Free

Here’s the lyrics to a song written in 1973

Loving Don’t Come Free

Under the neon street lights
When the sun’s gone down
Look at the faces of all the people
Walking round the town
One of them is my girl
The girl I left behind
Like a needle in a haystack
I guess I‘ll never find

I looked in all the places
Where we used to go
Drinkin’ heavy at our table
Hoping that she’d show
Feeling kinda lonely
Needed company
Took a walk down to the district
Where the loving don’t come free

Riding on a fast train
That was outward bound
Now there’s nothing going for me
Back in that old town
Where my search has ended
With the face I see
Under street lights in the district
Where the loving don’t come free
