1. Scamtown

From the recording A Change In The Air


SCAMTOWN ©1984 Don Lange

Bag lady with a shopping cart
wears tennis shoes, gets a quick start
on her day
hauling the cans away

Guys at the mission sitting on stairs
hungry for soup, they'll say a few prayers
Jesus saves, Jesus saves, Jesus saves
at the end of another day Down in


Scamtown, everybody's going down to
Scamtown, got to make a living down in
Scamtown, just another day

Devotee of some guru
says she knows I'm bright but so confused
and she knows the way
all I have to do is pay Down in


Winemakers, winos, corporate thugs,
aliens wrapped up in Persian rugs,
and the numbers men,
lovers and friends Down in
