lyrics

Last Urban Hoser

By: Charlie Mills

Guide this car got it through the dark
Where the winds are blowing
strong warm and hard
winds are blowing
strong warm and hard

Yes you raised me
Raised me well
By the lights of the tower and the Great Lakes' swell
Lights of the tower
And the Great Lakes swell

But I....I can't stay here anymore
And I...I don't belong
Last Urban Hoser

Hard to leave and I can't understand
It's the tax on the house
and the price on the land
tax on the house
and the price on the land

Tired of all the show and tell
Rest of the country
sees a swollen hell
My streetcar rolled passed
And the Gardens fell

Streetcar rolls past
and the Gardens fell
The restaurant got up on Leslieville
In the Cabbagetown
nothing comes for free
Stay or go I could do my best
Hanging out with the hipsters
Out on Queen West
In the end maybe it's just me
Singing Hogtown blues
Last Urban Hoser

i can't stay
Maybe I can stay
I can't stay
Last Urban Hoser

Yeah we made it through the dark
The winds are blowing
Strong, warm, and hard
The winds are blowing
Strong, warm, and hard

Streetcar rolls past
and the Gardens fell
The restaurant got up on Leslieville
In the Cabbagetown
nothing comes for free
Stay or go I could do my best
Hanging out with the hipsters
Out on Queen West
In the end maybe it's just me
Singing Hogtown blues
Last Urban Hoser

Yes you raised me
Raised me well
By the lights of the tower and the Great Lakes' swell
Yes you raised me
Raised me well
By the lights of the tower while the Great Lake swelled
