SIDEWALKS

Sidewalks, what became of the sidewalks
Those shady lanes of concrete
So cool to naked young feet
Oh, sidewalks
That Momma swept 'n kept

Sidewalks, what became of the sidewalks
That blushing brides would stroll on
And stroller wheels would roll on
On those sidewalks
Where marbles bounced high, as high as the sky

We used to skate there
And double date there
We planned our fate there
Then you said goodbye

Sidewalks, what became of those sidewalks
That old folks stood and talked on
And hearts we drew with chalk' on
And friendly strangers walked on
Oh, those sidewalks
Oh, where did they go, I miss them so
