My transcription from Spotify:


DOWN IN THE MILLTOWN [sic]
As sung by John Gorka on "I Know" (1987)

1. Oh, when my shift is over and I'm headed home,
I don't listen to the radio; I like to be alone,
I like to be alone.

2. 'Cause I've had my fill of people and all that fact'ry noise.
I listen to the engine, the sound that I enjoy,
The sound that I enjoy.

3. So I drive on past the drive-in, on past the movie lights,
Past the fenced-in fantasy; I slip into the night.
I slip into the night.

CHORUS: Down in the mill town, the mill town so low,
Hang your head over; feel the wind blow.

4. And I wonder what's for dinner, if she'll be waitin' there.
She has to wake up early; she has to do her hair.
She has to do her hair.

5. And if I need a cold one, there's a tavern up the street.
Company of loners is still company to me.
Yes, they're company to me. CHORUS

6. And if my dreams treat me badly and I cry out at night,
Shake me to my senses and I will be all right.
Yes, I will be all right. CHORUS TWICE
