Track Name: Hawthorne - City of Good Neighbors
I took the night train from Twin Cities Minnesota
took the long way over North Dakota
saw the glaciers of Montana Idaho
saw the shining mountain in Oregon
Had a poor man's lunch in Portland
I took the back door baby oh through Oakland
Making my oh through California
Gonna find my way in Los Angeles

I got dropped off at midnight down at Union Station
Took a black man's ride oh in his station wagon
took a short cut oh through Inglewood
stopped at In and Out Burger ate like animals
what's a brother and white boy doin' down in the hood
must be something wrong must be something now good
oh Mr. LAPD where you find the time
You always red white and blue me comin' up from behind
I seen them bad boys sellin' those nickels and dimes
you always red white and blue thinkin' yr business in mine

Now it's been some time since I been with my own kind
I ain't seen no pale faces here for miles
so I head on up oh to the hills
gonna spend my money on organic honey and wine
oh livin' in the city can be a good time
when you spend your money on organic honey and wine
whatcha gonna do oh yr money all gone?
I gotta hustle for a dollar oh like the others downtown
I'm gonna sell my gold filling oh for a shilling downtown

I'm always looking up when I'm walking downtown
at them shiny shiny buildings the one's that reflect the clouds
at them shiny shiny buildings you and me ain't allowed
at them shiny shiny buildings a little closer to god

Now the heat's gettin' to me let's go somewhere else
There's only one place to go when the sun go down
to the fisherman's pier oh down by the ocean
you don't need no money oh down by the ocean
It's all white, black and brown down by the ocean
we'll watch the sun and the moon pass the baton
then a midnight kiss it's time to be moving on

I take the blue line baby oh to Compton
It's a long long wait in Compton
and excuse me Mr. oh have you heard of the lord?
I guess I got time you can pray for my soul
I take the green line baby it's just one bus more
oh Mr. Bus driver lady oh please take me home
to the city of good neighbor down in Hawthorne
I'm gonna lie with my baby down in Hawthorne
All the good neighbors down in Hawthorne
All the good baby's down in Hawthorne
All the fine lady's down in Hawthorne
All my main homey's down in Hawthorne
All my good eatin' down in Hawthorne
All my good sleepin down in Hawthorne
All the good neighbors down in Hawthorne
All my good neigbors down in Hawthorne

Track Name: Sunrise
Give it up for the old man broken and poor he walks through the day and he sleeps on the floor
Give it up for the children the children of war I saw them on t.v I see them at home
Give it up for the sunrise over the hill I know it brings something it gives me a chill
Give it up for the birdies the birds in sky they sing through the winter they sing through my life
Give it up give it up don't give it away I know you got something you been hiding today
Give it up give it up don't give it away I know you got something you been trying to say
I know something you might know know to
Give it up give it up and give it away I went with the sunrise I went all away I know someone you might know to
Give it up give it up and give it away I went with the sunrise I went out to play
I know somewhere you might know to
Give it up give it up and give it away I went with the sunrise I ran all away
I know something you might know to
Give it up give it up and give it away I went with the sunrise x3
