Rain came down in endless sheets of thunder
In the shadow of the Astrodome
We used to hit the streets and go swimming in our birthday suits
Skiing in a bar ditch behind a moped
We were dirt poor Houston kids
But we always had a nickel for the coming of the ice cream man
Mosquito truck blowing up DDT
Air raid buzzer at a noon-day scream
On Telephone Road
I used to love them cherry Cokes down at the Prince's Drive-In
There's a Chinaberry tree I remember
The night I left was on the day before my Grandma died
Sawdust spread out on a dance hall floor
Barmaid smiling at a 10 cent tip
On Telephone Road
Magnolia Garden bandstand on the very front row
6 years old and just barely off my daddy's knee
Sent the Devil running right through me
A drive-in movie in the trunk of my car
Spit-shine Charlie and ol' Peg-leg Bill
On Telephone Road
Telephone Road, Telephone Road
Barbecue and beer on ice
At the Little Taste of Paradise
