lyrics

Cuban Johnny checks his lines
And walks on down the docks
Everybody knows his name
Everybody stops and talks
They talk about the weather
Talk about the fishing
It’s getting hard to make it pay
Down at the end of the road
It’s the start of a brand new day

Dancing Jimmy went a little too far
He can’t drink in the bar no more
But the music lives inside of him
So he dances outside the door
Don’t you know he’s doing so much better
Ever since he found a place to stay
Down at the end of the road
It’s the start of a brand new day

Judy came from Southern Cal
When daddy went away
Since then she had to find another pal
But daddy left her sitting okay
The doctor said she’s gonna be all right
Just as long as she medicates
Down at the end of the road
It’s the start of a brand new day

They come from all around the world
To southernmost USA
Some of them come to work
But mostly they come to play
It takes a whole lot of nothing
To make you really want to stay
Down at the end of the road
Down at the end of the road

I’ve seen the people come and go
I’ve listened to what they had to say
I’ve wondered about the places they come from
And I’ve tried to second-guess their taste
And I can tell you, I’ve see strange, strange things
Looking out from this doorway
Down at the end of the road
It’s the start of a brand new day
