    Lyrics

    (Don Reid)

    From Tampa Florida's pride and joy to California shame
    She left home and came out west and changed her Christian name
    She thumbed her way for seven days and way too many nights
    And hit the streets of San Francisco running for her life.

    A week in cosmetology two weeks in airline school
    Seven days of shorthand in a secretarial pool
    But now deskclerks and bellhops now know her by her face
    And the folks of Tampa know her by her mama's disgrace.

    All through the day she sits alone and dreams of Tampa High
    Wonders what the other kids are doing then she cries
    Then with the California sun she goes down every night
    And hits the streets of San Francisco walking for her life.

    In her mind she plays a make believe game of her own
    She pretends she's window shopping furnishing a home
    For a husband who will come along and take her from this life
    But for now a John will come along and take her for the night.

    All through the day she sits alone and dreams of Tampa High
    Wonders what the other kids are doing then she cries
    Then with the California sun she goes down every night
    And hits the streets of San Francisco walking for her life.

    She'll walk the Streets of San Francisco the rest of her life...
