Sycamore Street by Kimberlye Gold and Johnny Douglas

Sycamore Street
Words and music by: Kimberlye Gold/Johnny Douglas

Hey Lucy
Whatcha got going on girl, talk to me
Tell me
Some people saw ya hangin' out down at the Mercury, was that you?

Gettin' high off some funky vibe
Ya know you never used to do that

Are you stealin' yourself away, stealin' yourself away?

CH: (She said) Can't be who I was before
Can't go back there anymore
Never wore it very well
The girl I used o try to be
Worked for everyone but me
Pleasing everybody else
Now they have to face the fact
I'm never going back to SYCAMORE STREET

Hey Lucy
Ya cut off all your hair and tell me, where'd ya get those shoes
Funny
All these years that I've known ya and I swear I don't even know ya
Wonder why I never saw this comin'
Like some total transformation

Are you stealin' yourself away, stealin' yourself away?

CH:

Cracks on my sidewalk
Said don't think or talk too much
This time it's your turn to fly

Hey Lucy
It's been so good to see ya girl, don't be a stranger 'round here
Call me
We'll go have a margarita and you can tell me what's goin' on

While you're stealin' yourself away, stealin' yourself away

CH: (She said) Can't be who I was before
Can't go back there anymore
Never wore it very well
Can't you see I'm much too strong
Can't be where I don't belong
Givin' it to someone else
The girl I used o try to be
She got introduced to me
Now I'm livin' for myself
Now everybody face the fact
I'm never going back to SYCAMORE STREET

Steve Massam/BBC Radio, notes "Kimberlye is a breath of fresh air; she sings from the heart with true feeling and passion. She can rock, yet has a quality in her voice that easily compares with Emmylou Harris or Allison Krauss." Ben Fong-Torres, author/journalist & former senior editor of Rolling Stone magazine states, "Kimberlye has a way with words and music; based as much on heart and soul as they are on rock & roll, folk, country and the blues. Her voice, pretty, strong and rocking, is equally adept at covering all those musical bases a
