    There's a crooked street
    In Houston town
    It's a well born path
    I've traveled down
    Now there's ruin in my name
    I wish I never got off the train
    I wished I'd listened
    To the words you said

    Don't go down to Fannin Street
    Don't go down to Fannin Street
    Don't go down to Fannin Street
    You'll be lost and never found
    You can never turn around
    Don't go down to Fannin Street

    Once I held you in my arms
    I was sure
    But I took that silent stare
    Through the guilded door
    The desire to have much more
    All the glitter and the roar
    I know this is where
    The sidewalk ends


    When I was young
    I thought only of getting out
    I said goodbye to my street
    Goodbye to my house
    Give a man gin, give a man cards
    Give an inch he takes a yard
    And I rue the day
    That I stepped off this train
