Lyrics
You might say I did some hard time in the deserts of Iraq
And found out I'd been replaced by the factory when I got back
For an extra weekend paycheck, I hooked up with the National Guard
An' now out here livin' without a job can be mighty hard
Here on the boulevard, boulevard

Here on the boulevard, everybody's in a hurry to get somewhere
Nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care
Even an ol' lame dog gets to sleep in his own backyard
An' you know, life out here can be mighty hard
Here on the boulevard, boulevard

Maybe tomorrow I'll find my way on down to the mission
They'll feed me soup and a sandwich an' feed me some religion
Might get a cot to sleep on tonight if it's not too crowded a condition
But you know the next day out here's gonna be just as hard
Here on the boulevard, boulevard

Here on the boulevard, got to keep on movin' from place to place
Sleep with both eyes open, watch my back, watch my face
Some are dealt an ace of diamonds, some end up with a different card
An' you know life out here can be mighty hard
Here on the boulevard, boulevard

Ask me why I walk the streets at night and hang around downtown in the day
But jus' where do you think you would go, if you had no other place to stay?

Here on the boulevard it can be hard to keep your faith in God
With no shower, phone or home, it's so hard to get a job
Even an ol' lame dog gets to sleep in his own backyard
An' you know life out here can be so mighty hard
Here on the boulevard, boulevard
