lyrics

bridges on rivers, trains in the ground
took us to churches, took us to school
cowboys and indians, fought on tv
and little children, knew up from down

trains on the East side, slipped out of town
as my home by the river, was burning down
gangsters on tv, ran from the law
cowboys killed indians, and saved us all

radio signals, talked of the world
from distant places, wise voices called
but we walked on bridges, over East River
and New York children, robbed candy stores

bridges on rivers, trains in the ground
took us to churches, took us to school
cowboys and indians, fought on tv
and little children, knew up from down
and New York children, knew up from down
