Tin Pan Alley
written by
James Reed


Went down to Tin Pan Alley
See what was going on
Things was too hot down there
Couldn't stay very long
Hey hey hey hey, Alley's the roughest place I've ever been
All the people down there
Livin' for their whisky, wine, and gin

I heard a woman scream
Yeah and I peeped through the door
Some cat was workin' on Annie with a
Lord with a two-by-four
Hey hey hey hey, Alley's the roughest place I've ever been
All the people down there
Livin' for their whisky, wine, and gin

I heard a pistol shoot
Yeah and it was a .44
Somebody killed a crap shooter cause he didn't
Shake, rattle, and roll
Hey hey hey hey, Alley's the roughest place I've ever been
All the people down there
Killin' for their whisky, wine, and gin

I saw a cop standing
With his hand on his gun
He said "this is a raid, boy
Nobody run"
Hey hey hey hey, Alley's the roughest place I've ever been
Yeah they took me away from Alley
Lord they took me right back to the pen
